India is beautiful, rich and poor, and diverse beyond belief - a total and often overwhelming assault on the senses. Demands on your patience, stamina, humour and adaptability can be considerable but the ease with which we travel and trek through India while staying fit and well, lays low many of the myths and heightens the enjoyment. We believe it is a wonderful country and amid so much noise, heat and activity, the equanimity and dignity of its people contrast powerfully with our sometimes muddled western values.
