Delhi to Katmandu, Part 10

Delhi to Katmandu, Part 10

In 2010, I went on an amazing trip, from Delhi to Katmandu. I just want to use this Post to share with you some of the photographs I took on the way. Both were amazing countries and India was particularly vibrant and exciting. Some of the photos were taken through vehicle windows, so i apologise for the poor quality. I don’t propose to write very much, Although my third novel,  Devils with Wings: Frozen Sun, is now with my publisher, Silverwood Books,  I have started on my new ‘Cold War’ series. So please just enjoy the pictures. The journey continues…

  1. Were you serious about the size of the spider? And then what do you think I was thinking as that woman carried the huge load of leaves (and what else) on her back?

      1. Well, thanks for that info, Harvey. You’ve just saved me a lot of money that I might otherwise have spent on plane fare to India and Nepal.I have goosebumps right now just thinking about that spider. Have you heard about the recent tarantula invasion in some small village in India? What a place to live! So glad you got out alive.
