I like the bit at the end 'leave two empty seats on the flight home'. I've really enjoyed your blog Lu, it's so good and not that big a fan of travel writing.

Dr Shashi, I'm sorry this response is so late, i am not sure if you'll ever read this, but thanks for your message and thoughts. I too am surprised that Bidar features so little on India's well established tourist circuits. There are so many little visited gems that foreigners miss, i feel lucky to have seen a place like Bidar and was amazed that it was so quiet. My husband and i are English, and you asked about recommendations of places to visit in our country - i'd say the Lake District, Stonehenge, Oxford, London and my homeland of Yorkshire, which has beautiful landscapes. Many good wished, Lu.

I love how I can read the first and last paragraphs of your blogs and feel like I read the whole thing! Your style is obviously very refined, and this is before reading all the juicy details in the middle. That dune sunset looked timeless!

Thank you!
This is such lovely writing that gives a great sense of your experience. My husband has just arrived in Uwaijima today, and I'm in Sydney and only able to communicate by text message, so it's great to be able to get a vicarious sense of participation in the experience via blogs such as yours!

Hello :)
It was my hard luck that i saw ur blog so late :(.. It gives me immense pleasure to write to u . I m local from bidar pursuing my masters in USA , I have been born and brought in Bidar, The experience of urs wat u have shared here is very true and best. Bidar is not projected on the tourism scale where it really belongs, The city holds many amazing structures with a lot of histroy behind it .but there r no guides to explain all to thr ppl lik u who come all the way down here to witness the place. I wld like to know frm which country do u ppl hail from. and also tell me abt any places to visit in ur country thanx a ton fr ur sweet and heartly writing. Regards, Shashi ,,, :)
