Messner On Tour
Arrive In Delhi after meeting a hatter on the plane (mad 40 year old Spanish woman) with feelings of fear, excitement and tiredness! After commandeering a taxi the fun began. Any fears of a culture shock were quickly put to bed when we nearly crashed into an elephant on the dual carriageway.... I found Phil as planned, which to tell you the truth was an option I hadn't considered.Nay bother then - train booked at 6am and so to bed. The air conditioner turned out to be a sausage machine as it produced: a) no cool air b) Noise not dissimilar to that of a Harrier jet on take off c) a fine coating of grease that left a nice moist film of an unrecognisable oil based substance upon my person and posessions. After 6 hours in Delhi then it was adios and a 8 hour train journey towards Pakistan.
