India - Part 1

I'm not normally big on writing stuff about places I've been and things I've done - certainly not about what one might call the larger experiences of life. It seems, somehow, to be pinning the experience down a little too definitely - by reporting this is how things happened it becomes a fixed story, and the story is remembered in preference to the experience. Also, I tend to think that if something is worth remembering, then I'll remember it - I don't make crib notes of my life.

But since I've had several requests, and since - as I have no problem in talking to people about the holiday - I would otherwise be leaving people out simply because I only know them online which seems a little unfair, I'll make an exception in this case.

This is coming out quite a bit longer than I expected. At the rate this is going it's going to be at least 3 parts. I'll follow up with a part two, probably tomorrow.
