        One of my other Indian friends told me about the tigers. Sadly, I doubt we would ever get up there as there is not major architecture there! I did tell David about the Bangalore gardens and he said that sounds nice. Only problem is that it is a huge city. He had to cut Mumbai. And wi probably cut Delhi next time. . . Too expensive and hard to manage the train with lge groups. And he had his IPhone stolen in train station. These things happen traveling. . . .

        Indeed it is expensive and hard to manage with large groups and especially when the Trains are jam-packed..
        And yes you might lose your valuables in such cases too..
        But I hope yo visit Bangalore on your next trip to India.. 😀

        Are you in school or working ? I love train travel , too ! We went 2 Nd class and it was fine in India. We went after the news story about food on trains making people sick so we ate lots of bananas, cookies . And chips? We went from Goa to Ahmedabad via Mumbai and I think time was. 18 hours. 56 hours, the vacation would be over. I don ‘t like to fly much but like to go places. . So have to . We flew to Varanasi.

        We would like to go on the next architecture group which is jam until May 2015. If he isn’t chosen to lead the group maybe we can just come on our own. When he comes as professor , we only have to pay for me and we get to. Stay for 4 months. We hope to go to Germany, Berlin and Istanbul Turkey this summer.

      I know that is Indo -Chinese border. I think Buddhism started in India. We never visited any temples but near Varanasi we saw a site of some special enlighten sermon. I , think too , that Buddhism is making a resurgence in the country of its birth! Is that true?

      • tiramit says:

        It started in India but became integrated into Hinduism, the resurgence you mention comprises Dalit Hindus, looking for liberation from oppression by upper caste Hindus

        Oh that is interesting. The caste system is outlawed now as is dowries but there is such a strong culture of it all. It takes ages to change hearts and minds.
