It’s been a busy few days, and on the Maharajas Express train internet access is often limited, though everything else is there in generous quantities.

But this morning we’re parked at a station long enough for me to load a few pics onto the blog. It’s a fabulous place to have a camera. It’s hard to take a bad shot and there are so many faces with some impressive facial hair…

  1. Mr Jain ! We bought a carpet of him in January 2006. So he is obviously doing well out of Aussie travellers Bushfires in the Blue Mountains but not near Leura so we sat by the creek and had a drink. Houses lost at Winmalee and Springwood . So we were just lucky. Hope all is going well now after your horror departure from Sydney. Cheers.
