It's 4:30, we have been up for 45 mins already. Train is full of Indians, Tilly has Delhi belly. Not a great day. But we are on our way to a tibetan community for some r and r. Amritsar.....the golden temple, shopping and crystal restaurant all very enjoyable. The ridiculous amount of dust and smoke, some very rude people and crazy road system made it a hard place to visit.

This is our meal from crystals last night. It's funny, 2 brothers fell out and split the business, so now there are 2 places called crystals next to each other with the sane quality of food, the one we chose was excellent.
Just spent the afternoon with a very kind Indian family. We met the head of the family keshiv a couple of days ago. Funny guy who asked us to pretend to be BBC reporters to impress his friends. We flew some kites from his roof top, climbed the other rooftops to get some stuck kites and had a nice dinner. nightmare getting away but a nice afternoon getting to see the real India.
Tilly and I hitting the golden temple for the second time. She wanted to see it in the evening so we went over after the kite celebration. Very spiritual. I was wearing my orange turban from narinder as a bandana and got a few curious looks. I make this holy s*** look good!
This is the place we have stayed at for the last 3 days. It's cheap as hell, I'm sure it would be nice in the summer but it's cold, o so cold! Tilly and I have had to zip our bags together at night.
