March 2016 saw Hector and Marg celebrate a Big (April) Birthday in the country that Hector simply had to visit. The presence of Archaeological Sites is fundamental to every major trip we undertake, that takes care of the days. At night, Food and Drink becomes the priority. Hector’s love of Indian Cuisine is documented, Indian Bier, we shall see.
I do not have enough years left to do India justice, especially when it has taken until my sixtieth year to return to the Indian Subcontinent. Sri Lanka in 2003 was an easier task, with the exception of the northern Tamil areas, the island was pretty much covered. After seventeen days in Sri Lanka I had had enough Coconut to last a lifetime. Avoiding Coconut was fundamental in choosing to cover the Golden Triangle of New Delhi, Jaipur and Agra. There is Coconut here as it happens, though one prediction has held – There are no Indian Restaurants in India, however I have seen – Punjabi Restaurants.
