I just wanted to thank you so much for your help, hints and the planning and suggestions you gave me to make my recent trip to India memorable and enjoyable. Without your help I am sure I would have found it all rather overwhelming especially on my own, but I felt I managed to do everything I wanted to do to give me a taste in the short time I had. I was probably naive with little concept of the crowds, the traffic, the noise etc but went with the flow and had relatively few hassles. I nearly came unstuck at New Delhi railway station when trying to catch my train south, being told the train I was booked on was cancelled but I persisted, bluffed and paid for a man to find my train, carry my bag and find carriage and seat which was wise so I did that for the other trips and had no problems at all. I was glad to have your advice there. The sights, sounds, colour, culture,history, monuments, historic buildings, temples etc were fascinating as were all the animals sharing the roads with that incredible traffic-especially in Jaipur and Agra. The accommodation you had booked was great and I would especially recommend the lovely Sik family I stayed with in Agra. There were 4 generations in the very comfortable home, in a lovely quiet semi rural area. Many thanks again, it was a very memorable trip to an amazing and totally fascinating country.
