Incredible India

Xiker posted this succinct summary of our trip on his facebook, a few days ago:

86 days, 33 cities + places around, 39 cheap rooms, 15 nights on the road/rails, 4 motorcycles, infinite hours on crowded varied local transport, up to 1000 ruins and temples-mosques-churches, a few friends and 10000 handshakes, 2 beard cuts, 2 new cameras, 1 perfect snowboarding day, the Ganga, the Dalai Lama…
sometimes hated but always loved, incredible INDIA!!!

In hindsight, a number of things were left out… How many dodged piles of dung, and how many times did I actually slip and smear it onto my foot?! How many festivals did we stumble upon? How many forts and tombs did we visit? We also had a thousand delicious meals, and only a few bland ones. You get the idea.

Yes, India was nothing short of incredible.
