So sorry to hear about Alison's stomach problems. It's bad enough to get sick while away from home, but when you're travelling on a bike, it makes travel pretty nearly impossible, doesn't it? I was lucky not to get sick on either of my trips to India, but I always knew it could happen anytime. Ironically, after all the travel, including dozens of canoe trips, the one time I did get giardia (the so-called "beaver fever"), I got it in the Christmas season, in Muskoka. Never did figure out where, nor did any of my friends come down with it. Glad you got to Sarnath -- such a peaceful place to recuperate. I spent a day there and left somewhat "templed out." At one of the last temples I visited, a man yelled at me because I wouldn't hire him to give me a tour -- I didn't take the time to explain why that was so inappropriate in one of the holiest of Buddhist places.Be safe, my friends, and keep those entries coming.RonP.S. I'm cycling up a storm in Florida, trying to get into reasonable cycling shape for my long tour that starts mid-March. I'm also enjoying my Trek rental bike, so light compared to my Miyata 610.
alison is all well and we enjoyed the "rest"in Sarnathhappy training!
