Trip to Delhi

I am departing for a trip to Delhi next week. A mixture of work and holiday.

I am due to visit a number of projects in the region, including i-India.

Thanks to my UK Purchased SIM card (procured via Holiday Phone) I will be contactable throughout my trip.

Beacons Way

With one week to go until the start of my attempt to complete the 100 Miles of the Beacons way in four days, I thought I would update my Blog with details of the walk ..

The Beacons way crosses the high lands of South Wales and includes all of the main ridge walks of the region - The map and height chart give an idea of the terrain

Kolkata - Slums near the Flower Market

Kolkata is developing rapidly and in the process many slums are being cleared to make new land for development. Some slums however still exist and are just as crowded and busy as ever.

Rural India (Tarakeswar) West Bengal

Much of the land of India is highly fertile, but the presures of the enlarging cities are being felt even in small country villages and market towns.
