Yearning for India

It doesn’t take much to have me yearning for India. I only spent a couple of weeks there earlier this year but hamo’s post about eating curry had me thinking of my journey yet again.

We didn’t eat much curry there …. only curry for breakfast, lunch and dinner most days. (You really ought to try a big dish of curried potatoes for breakfast sometime.) I wasn’t really a big curry eater before but since the trip I regularly suffer withdrawals.

The trip was an opportunity to export the ‘Bike for Bibles’ programme to the north west region of India. We worked alongside The Bible Society of India to create an even that was specifically Indian in nature. The last thing we wanted was to try to place somhing culturally relevant to Australia into India. That would serve no one.

I cycled from Agra to Delhi over several days and then cycled around Delhi for three days visiting a range of Christian churches. It was a stunning trip which was all videoed by a good friend. I’ll have to tell you some more about the trip sometime.
