To be honest Aemiillius my memories are dominated by the uncomfortable journey !
It may have changed, but back then 16 years ago the roads were almost non existent.
( Last time i was in India a couple of years ago we were down south in Tamil Nadu and the road building programme there was phenomenal.)
I arrived in Sankissa in a state of near exaustion. We had not allowed enough recovery time after the flight.
I have clearer memories of visiting Sarnath, Lumbini, and Bodh Gaya.
If you are interested I might find time to write about them..
