Update from Malaysia.

We arrived in India on the 2nd October and traveled throughout Rajasthan visiting Bikaner, Jaisalner,Jodhpur,Pushkar,and Jaipur. It was like a scene from Arabian Knights we even slept in the desert under the stars with our own camel !

We then traveled to Uttar pradesh to visit the Taj Mahal which is the most beautiful building in the world, (yes it is true do belive the hype). Then we were off to the Gangas at Varanasi and here we witnessed the funeral piles, and the holly waters.

We then returned to Delhi where we began our Journey to Shimla first by car and then riding the Toy Train through the mountains and up up and away to the Beautiful Hill town of Shimla.

Next we flew to Mumbai where we watched England being thrashed by India in the One Day Match. Her we celebrated Dewali with all the Indians before heading south to Goa for a well-earned two weeks on the beach. We found a delightful beach in South Goa in a small fishing village called Agonda, very few tourist and very unspoilt.

We are now in Malaysia in a lovely town called Malaka, a bit of a party town to tell the truth. Next stop is the Islands where we will meet up with our friend Sally.

Spent 3 nights in George Town on the Island of Penang, we are off to Langkawi tomorrow. It’s very hot and humid and today is very cloudy hope the sun will show up soon. I forgot to mention i bought a Guitar in Malaka, so all i need now is some lessons. We have met so many great people on this trip and we hope to meet up with them all in the near future.
