Location: Haridwar, India

MapFed up of Delhi and deciding to strike out alone I headed North. Haridwar one of the holiest places in India seemed a good bet. It wasn't though, the ghats at sunset were cool and a temple only reachable by cable car pretty good. The absence of any tourists the total dominance of Hindi and hence inability to order food, and finally the fact I felt a bit out of touch with the Hindu scene. Getting blessed at the temple was a low point, i gave some priests loads of money and looked like a pillock - i also accidentally ordered a feast for lumch. I determined to leave ASAP!
