Everyone loves a good map...
India is a mere three days away for our group from East Carolina University. Pretty much everyone we've talked to wants to know where we'll be going. They want specifics: The names of the towns, where they are in relation to each other, stuff like that.
So in response to popular demand, to the right is a map of the key destinations in India. Our plan is to fly in to Delhi, then go south to Agra (where the Taj Mahal is). We'll then make our way to Varanasi. To find Varansai: Locate the Ganges River from Delhi and trace it west to Varanasi. From there, we'll visit Patna and Bodh Gaya. For the second half of our trip, we'll visit McLeod Ganj (Dharamsala). To find McLeod Ganj, locate Delhi and look just north of Chanigargh and Simla. McLeod Ganj is near there. Wish us luck on our travels; we'll be taking planes, trains, Jeeps, buses, and the occasional motor rickshaw. More to report later!
