Talking sanDRina arriving in India!

April 12, 2013
Yay, sanDRina is finally arriving in India tonight!
It's been a 34 day sea journey for her from Cape Town, via Singapore. Her ship gets into Chennai Port tonight, and it'll hopefully only take 5 to 6 days until she's released from the grip of Indian Customs

Can't wait to ride her again


(somewhere in southwest Namibia)

Some delays with Indian Customs going on here in Chennai. Apparently the Bill of Lading (the crate's travel ticket) got issued in the name of my agent in Chennai and not to me, so customs wont release the crate until the name on the BoL is changed to the same name on the carnet. Only a few more days delay. The amendment to the BoL was applied for today, let's see. sanDRina probably free on Tuesday or Wednesday. Agent had a look at the crate and everything looks intact Few more days...

Laugh sanDRina cleared Indian customs today!

April 19, 2013

sanDRina cleared Indian customs today! But not yet free due to a mixup of names on the Bill of Lading (her sea ticket).

I finally managed to see the crate and was happy to see no damage and nothing missing The inspector asked me to open almost every box and bag in the crate; that took a while Said he was looking for narcotics. Yes sir, I'm only carrying spices though Glad he didn't make an issue out of the missing middle portion of my VIN number. So that's 37 borders crossed without a full VIN number


sanDRina must be dreaming of riding in Northern Mozambique...

Chicken Curry and Mr. Downs

We have made the Curry twice...from scratch.

The Spices a friend brought back from Dubai are the Baharat brand which I'd think you are familiar with.

John Down's really liked the dish as do we. We will be sure to make it again

Funny thing is we offered it in vegetarian form to two Russian couchsurfers and they cancelled...haha can't please everyone.

Regards,

TH

Haha, for sure, mate. I'm giving her a tour of the Himalayas as one last hurrah of this trip. Actually, I might skip Rohtang Pass because I'm thinking about riding thru Spiti Valley, which joins the Leh route just after Rohtang, but fear not, there's a lot of crazy high-altitude passes coming up in the next few weeks

Ahh, excellent, making the curries from scratch. Haha about the Russian surfers, they need their meat!

Cool2 Route Plan for Jammin thru India

April 23, 2013

Here's the route plan for the last leg of my journey. It'll be a 40 day 8,000 km (5,000 mile) road trip around India.

From Chennai, I'll be heading to my old school at Kodai and then the southernmost point of India at Kanyakumari. From there, it's north thru Kerala, Goa and Mumbai and then inland to Khajuraho and Agra. I'm planning about three weeks to get to Agra and then three weeks for a loop through the mountains

After showing sanDRina the Rockies, the Andes, the Alps and the Simiens, I'd like to thank her for taking me on this journey by showing her the mighty Himalayas. We'll be ending the journey after traversing some of the highest mountain passes in the world

From Kashmir, a quick stop in Amritsar and then the journey ends when we arrive in Delhi.

See the full journey route map here: http://bit.ly/rtw_map
