Ok 1st entry for you to read!!
So when we arrived after a long flight in Delhi,off  to a great start the complimentary pick up from the hotel was not there!! We managed to get a taxi to Royal Holiday and slept fro the 1st whole day!!! (the hotel was not ROYAL in anyway at all)
It was so noisy but and the smells????........ My god!!!! ha Jod you would have been sick by now!!!!
The next day we booked a 4 day tour seeing all the sights and with a guide to look after us that would take us where ever we needed to go!! Our Driver was called Amil an he was a 50 something lovely man... we taught him lots of english words and didn't stop laughing listening to him trying to pronounce them.... "alright mate" Lovely Jubley" alright Geezer!!!
The sights are all so beautiful and the grandest being of course The Taj Mahal!!! We cannot explain how amazing it is without you seeing it for yourself!
The people are very friendly and the kids love us all wanting to say Hi and have pictures with us.... we feel like celebrities!!!!
Ben was amazed at the train station yesterday watching somebody crouch with their bum over the edge of th rail track taking a nice long Poo !!!! It truly is another world out here... Cows pigs dogs chickens all roaming free all over the place even in the middle of the roads!!!! wait till you see the pictures!!

Me and Ben have both had Henna and its looks lovely!!! I have had the dreaded "Delhi Bellie" but not been too bad!!!
The roads are filthy and the poverty is very sad... children being the heart breakers!!! 
We are currently in Mumbai overnight as we leave tomorrow evening for GOA.  We came here on the overnight train from Jaipur which was 16 HOURS!!!! we had a bunk and shared with the indian people one of which gave us some of his home cooked food, now theres a way to try REAL indian food!! Ben could handle it but it blew my head off!!! They like it hot out here!!

We have traveled a long way in such a short space of time..... been to Delhi, Agra, Jaipur and Mumbai a lot of travelling in 1 week, we have done so much!!! looking forward to chilling on the beach in GOA!! Just another 12 hour train journey tomorrow night and we can relax!!!
Girls you will be pleased to know i am coping without my makeup (ok i have a little bit) and my backpack for the whole 3 1/2 months was only 13kg.... thats less than i had foe your Hen doo Beth and that was only a weekend!!!! ha
We are having a truly amazing time and are looking after each other.... 
 Ben said to tell you all it's as bad as mexico and it S**T!!!!!!
Love you lots will update when can 

Caz and ben xxxx

Caz & Ben, your trip so far, sounds absolutely amazing. (Especially the poo bit !!!!?) Seems weird to think how hot it is there, when we are freezing our tits off here, whilst playing in the snow! Take care, and we'll look out for the next exciting installment. Love you, miss you x
