Garry McGivern’s South Asia bike-ride, India, Thursday, 17th-November-2016 Khatima to Moradabad. 84 miles. Now, what came first, the bad mood, bad roads or the bad drivers? I suspect it was the bad mood! The hotel, or rather the place I stopped at last night, was so noisy it kept me awake for much of the night. Some party or celebration was going on across the road, with loud music. It wasn’t so much the loudness of the music that annoyed me. It was more the fact that the music was so distorted! They always have to play music to the limit of the speakers.
Not too sure what time I fell asleep, but it wasn’t for long. I soon got woken up again by somebody in the hotel, possibly the staff playing loud music! So it was no wonder I woke up in a bad mood, which wasn’t helped by the bad roads and drivers. And when somebody cut me up and forced me off the road, they felt the full force of my bad mood. I had a right go at them! And what was their response? They just looked back at me as if they’d done nothing wrong, but I made sure they knew I wasn’t happy! As far as I was concerned, everybody was a tosser today!!
Come Back Nepal
I’m already missing Nepal. All the places I stayed were pretty good and had good wifi, whereas what they pass for good here in India leaves a lot to be desired. They also don’t tend to have wifi. Or if they do, it’s ridiculously slow!
Don’t get me wrong, I love India. I just find some of the accommodation a bit frustrating, especially when they bill it as a luxury hotel when it’s not! But I can’t complain tonight; the hotel is lovely and clean, with good wifi, a bar and a restaurant. And it’s only costing me £6. Hopefully, I’ll be in a better mood tomorrow. Good night everyone!
