Thurs 15. Tivsa to Nagpur. 81 miles

The guest house I stayed in last night was noisy all night, think people were going to prayer or something and they were up really early, even before me, but for what I paid it was good and I wanted to be on the road early anyway.

Bit of an eventful ride today, saw quite a few accidents which looked fairly nasty, but didn’t look too closely! Had a blockade of the road with burning tyres, apparently they were protesting about some government thing. Also saw quite a few monkeys today just running from one side of the road to the other and one that was sat at the side of the road, managed to get his photo as I passed but didn’t stop, he didn’t look too friendly! Also met a couple from Italy who are doing more or less the same journey as me but on motorcycles. When we stopped to talk it wasn’t in the best of places as it was in a village so we just got mobbed, think the girl wasn’t too pleased with all the attention, I know how she feels it does get a bit much sometimes, didn’t talk to them for too long it just got too crowded!

Got to Nagpur and got lost as normal in a big city, luckily 2 young lads asked me where I was going, I said I want a hotel with a bar and internet access, so off we went with me following them on there motorbike to a nice hotel, not cheap but hay ho it’s my birthday! Instead of going for a curry, I’ve had a chinese tonight!
