Sara and I are planning our big trip to India and Nepal in October/November.
We have all the flights and hotels booked, so were are working on itineraries for each of the cities we are staying in: Delhi, Jaipur, Kolkata, and Kathmandu. We are going around the time of Diwali, so there will likely be many lights, fireworks and festival events for us to check out.
We are taking a day flight to London and sleeping in the airport (at a Yotel) that night, waking up and boarding a day flight to Delhi. We are spending 4 nights in Delhi with our friend Richard Wright (fellow Hiram Grange author), then taking a train to Jaipur where we will spend 3 nights; then a flight to Kolkata, where we will stay 4 nights; and a flight to Kathmandu, where we will stay for 4 nights, and a flight back to Delhi for a final night before our long, long flights back to the US.
I will be posting more detailed city itineraries as they firm up. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
