Ireland

Chitwan to Tansen then Pokhara

Chitwan to Tansen then Pokhara

India – Udaipur, When the River Lights Up

  Chai masala! Chai masala! This must be at least the 3 time this morning that i heard someone selling tea in the subway car. Either the Indian folks have no manners, get up really early or i am not entirely sure what time it is. In the now-infamous Darien Gap...
