Fri 16. Nagpur to Deori. 91 miles
Good evening last night, got talking to some local business men who meet at the hotel bar a couple of times a week, they even got me a birthday cake with happy birthday on it, which was a really nice gesture. I was saying how Indian people are always interested in what your doing and want to help in anyway they can, they said “in India we respect guest as a god”. No wonder I get mobbed whenever I stop!
They do like their whiskey here the Indians last night got through nearly 2 bottles, they tried to make me have some, but I was a good boy and stuck to my beer, we know what happened the last time I had whiskey with the Romanians!
The area that I’m in and have been cycling through is tiger territory, I’ve been warned by 2 people today, didn’t see any only monkeys again, I did try standing by the jungle and calling here kitty kitty, but it didn’t work! Just as well really!
The difference in accommodation from one night to the next is amazing, last night it was a big posh hotel at £50 a night, tonight it’s another hotel at £2.50 a night, that’s the joys of travelling the way I do, you never know what your going to get!
