After a missed approach due to a thunderstorm over Delhi, I finally arrived. On Sunday I intended to proceed to Chandigarh
, joint capital of the two neighbouring states of Punjab and Haryana.
After hovering a while over the town, the captain announced that we have to return to Delhi due to bad visibility caused by a dust storm. We landed and, as expected, the flight was finally canceled! Super! This forced us to change plan.
Next day a 5 hours drive to Chandigarh where we finally met with Rajesh
I was to travel by car to the holy town of Haridwar
situated at the River Ganges. Suresh Kuttinath
will meet me there. All went well, after 7 hours drive, I reached the place.
The Northern part of this trip ended on Thursday in Delhi and I traveled to Mumbai
where I met some old friends from Lagos times. Than with Rahul Joshi to Srivassa (ALOK)
Nagpur. Via Mumbai to Chennai to Madurai where Manick
took over. We traveled to Rajapalayam, Dindigul and Coimbatore
On Sunday we made a nice excursion up the mountains to Kodaikanal
, at 2130 m asl. it was cool, later it started even raining. A welcome change of climate! Than via Bangalore
(Andhra Pradesh), back to Hydarabad
to Mumbai and finally home to Zurich where the temperature was 11°C.
