thanks Gaurav, I'm very happy to say that I should be in India for a week this summer, and I can't wait! I do not have long, but hope to visit the Ellora and Ajanta caves from Mumbai. It'll be my fourth time in India and it's a country I have become so fond of. Thanks so much for reading my blog. Best wishes, Lu.

Thanks Bidarian/Imran, for your kind words. I'd love to visit Bidar again, and spend even more time there. There were many things we didn't have time to see, and it's always nice to get more of a chance to soak up the atmosphere. It sounds as though lots of changes will be made, and perhaps soon more tourists will discover Bidar. Best wishes and thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Lu.

Hence would like you to visit again. I elevated after reading ur post, i am gonna refer this to my friends so that they know abt my place.

If anyone has a red red recipe, I'm dying to get my hands on one. I volunteered in Cape Coast over the summer and was never able to get a red red recipe before I left....

Thanks Zia, for your comments and for reading my blog. I really hope I do get a chance to return to Bidar some day. It's very interesting to hear that it has changed a lot since I visited in 2008. Best wishes to you - Lu

Cheers, Azore. I'm so envious of you, living in Bamenda. Never a dull moment out there, and I swear that area was one of the most beautiful of all the places we saw in our six months in Africa. Watch out at Metchum Falls - we were told several times that the falls are dangerous - enchanted, even - and suck people in - ! Very beautiful though. Thanks so much for reading my blog. Lu

Great travel piece there, captivating with all the "squelchy" descriptions! I got itchy feet too and actually live and work in Cameroon, but have never been beyond Bamenda. My next trip is surely going to take me to Menchum and Nyos! Oh, Bribe Capital indeed, you could be more accurate. Cheers

Hi Eb Roell, thanks so much for reading my blog and for your well wishes with my writing. It is indeed a tough industry, and a lot of good stuff doesn't get a publisher or falls out of print quickly. Some of the most captivating and specialist travel writing is print on demand. I'd be really interested to know more about your book, may have a glance on Amazon... you are right, we didn't get a chance to visit Uganda, i would love to someday. You were there at such an intense time - I was reading about Amin recently, in Kapuscinski's 'Shadow of the Sun'... almost impossible to believe what people are capable of... so glad it is a different story these days. Best wishes to you. Lu.

Conquering Continents
Agadir caught my eye, because Debbie and I passed through there on our honeymoon hitchhiking tour through West Africa. You've had a great trip, indeed, and worth sharing with the broader public in a book. I trust you will have more luck finding a publisher than I did. Unless your name is out there on TV or in print already, there is little hope. It's Catch 22 - you must have been published to get published. I finally published my book through a print-on-demand publisher, and while it is on Amazon, I hate every copy they sell because the toner that is used for that type of publishing (rather than ink) wears off the edges, and my cover is mostly black. I had a first-class outfit redo it in quantity, but that took some bucks. Anyway, all the best. By the way, it seems you missed "the Pearl of Africa," as Churchill called Uganda. We lived there for 5 years right after Amin. A great country with lovely people. But the poverty at the time was unbelievable, and it was dangerous living, especially with my family. AK47s abounded and sometimes bullets flew. Six of my friends were killed. But times have changed and today it is a lovely place to visit - my most favorite place in the world, and I have been all over. Keep it up, and God bless you. Eb

Love The Story
I hope that some day Africa is able to heal its wounds and that the rampant problems of civil war, aids, and poverty become its past rather than present. I have not been yet but your stories and posts rewet my travel appetite and resolve to someday visit. Thanks. [url=]Joshua[/url]

Frank, thanks for your message, and i'd be happy to answer your pilgrimage questions/offer any advise that would be useful. if you use the 'private message' function, you should be able to send a message that is forwarded to my emai and i'll be sure to respond. cheers. I'm sure you'll love Shikoku.

A very inspiring and awesome read
Hey Lu, just stumbled across your blog, while collecting information about the Shikoku trail. I'm planning to go there next May, but only have 3 weeks for the journey. Aside from reading about your problems with the blisters, I'm wondering if I could tap your experience and ask for some useful hints regarding accomodation along the first 22 stops/temples. Thanks very much in advance. And all the best for your trip to Africa. Cheers *frank
