What a fortnight it has been. After a a few days meeting and greeting in Udaipur, we set off in a southerly direction to the next state, Madra Predesh. On Diwali - were we mad, yes I think so. The roads crowded with every form of transport you could think off, each vehicle held more people than possible, all wanting to be home with their families.
We thought the journey might take eight hours. Ha, ha! Some roads were brilliant, others full of potholes. We had frequent breaks for chai and birdwatching, yummy curries in road side Dhabas.
No. 1 rule when travelling on the road, never travel after dark. That went out of the window.
Arrived in Indore at 8pm, continued for another hour and meeting up with our host in Satawab to find everything was closed for Diwali and our host hadn't finished building the guest bungalow. Ah, this in India. Tomorrow is another day and we plan to visit the ancient city of Mandu, a mere five hours away.
