Thank God it's (the) Friday (mosque)
Review of Friday Mosque (Jama Masjid), Delhi by koshkha

Advantages: Architecturally charming and built on a scale that's hard to imagine
Disadvantages: Those housecoats!

I love a good mosque As someone who’s not really a fan of organised religions, I have a very open and enthusiastic mind when it comes to religious architecture. Churches and mosques are my favourites, probably because I’ve been to so many that I un ... Read review

Not gorillas in the mist - just elephants in the rain
Review of Elephant Safari, Thekkady by koshkha

Advantages: Who can resist elephants?
Disadvantages: Rather too much of a 'production line' tourist experience.

Nelly Love I love elephants – I suspect most people do, if not the physical reality of one charging towards them, then at least the idea of elephants is very appealing. There’s something so compelling about their slow, plodding nature, their f ... Read review

Advantages: Much better than it used to be
Disadvantages: Transport connections aren't great.

Review of Indira Gandhi International Airport, New Delhi by koshkha

Advantages: It works
Disadvantages: I can't guarantee how long it will stay so lovely

Not So Happy Memories Once upon a time, any traveller arriving in India was hit instantly by culture shock the moment they stepped off the plane; the airports were dreadful. Whilst I used to enjoy the exotic scent of joss-sticks, it was harder to tur ... Read review

The carpet did give me a bit of a headache after a long flight plus an unscheduled 2 hour stop in Nagpur due to unseasonable fog in Delhi. Baggage was still taking a silly amount of time in late 2010 but the domestic side was also shiny and new by then. I know it's mad but I do kind of miss the old "Indianness" of the airport by BristolBud
