Pat, India indeed looks a wonderful country for any budding tourist to visit.

However.. the smog, the street traders and their unrefigerated food, not to mention the odd Puff-Adder popping up at the roadside, would make me personally think twice these days.

I'd like to be convinced hen, tell me some more.

Pat, where are my manners?

Superb photies....

Jimmy: to say nothing of the Delhi Belly. It was a great experience - never to be repeated. I've just found all the bumf so there will be more in dribs and drabs.

Is this the same fort that's the subject of Bernard Cornwell's Sharpe's Fortress: Richard Sharpe & the Siege of Gawilghur, December 1803? I know there are different spellings, and your photo looks like the description in the book.

Even if they're not the same fort, the photo is great anyway.

Gwalior Fort looks amazing, I would love, love, love to go! These days I see a bit of food poisoning as quite useful in the 'keeping down the weight' game, so I'd build it in to my plans.

Charlie: such hard questions. I did a bit of research and it seems they are the same:-
'He went on to win another battle at Argaum and take the fortress of Gawlighur (Gwalior). .....'
Well spotted:}

Eryl: believe me you do not want to get what I got in Jaipur. Gory details later:)

LOVE these two pictures, too, Pat, particularly the second one. There is this mysterious feeling about it.

Naomi: shame they don't blow up.
