* The spectacular Pink City of Jaipur
* The Ganges at Varanasi.

I have checked the weather and it looks as though it will be in the 40s so I will finally see some sun after the long winter we have had here in the UK. Will try and keep you updated on the way if I can. Off to do some last minute packing now.
