Rare Stamps offers a revealing insight into the life of an actor and the making of a man. Beginning with an Academy Award nomination for Billy Budd in 1962, Terence Stamp was called "the most beautiful man alive," only to be discarded at the end of the decade with the words, "we're looking for a younger Terence Stamp." Soul searching, he traveled alone through India, staying at the Taj Mahal Hotel while studying above a public lavatory with a chain smoking guru, only to wind up back in London and broke by 1984. Stamp's has been a journey rich with characters and adventure, and nothing has gone to waste. From dining in Paris with Orson Wells to working with Marlon Brando; being directed by Steven Soderberg or acting beside Jim Carrey, Tom Cruise and Matt Damon, Stamp has become an unbiased observer of his own life and the lessons gleaned from it. He writes about an actor's intuition, confronting fear, developing the voice, learning the words and surrendering to the moment in order to achieve the nearly mystical 'first take' in a style that is both personal and captivating, but perhaps the real beauty of Rare Stamps is that, time after time, he returns to a theme that has become his mantra for life, "Everything you need is in this moment."

Northern India is bordered by Pakistan to the west, China, Nepal and Bhutan to the north, and Bangladesh and Myanmar to the east. Hindi and English are the two official languages. After colonisation by Great Britain in the mid-1850s, India achieved independence in 1947, mostly by non-violence. India is home to 1.1 billion people and is richly diverse. This vast country's northern region is home to it's capital city, New Delhi, as well as many pilgrimage centers such as Varanasi, world heritage sites such as the Taj Mahal, several excellent universities, countless national parks and reserves, and breathtaking flora and fauna. Rajasthan is one of India's most touristically popular northern provinces, of which Jaipur is the state capital. This area is well known for it's rich cultural heritage. The Indian people, 80% of whom follow Hinduism, are kind and welcoming. Popular trips for tourists include the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, Jaipur), Dharamsala, and the palaces of northern India. Considerations: get appropriate vaccinations before you leave, avoid getting too close to Pakistan, never keep your wallet in your back pocket, avoid using your left hand (particularly when eating), don't smoke in public and do not sunbathe topless (it's illegal).
Advantages: Lots of food, very inexpensive Disadvantages: Ideal if your hungry - but too spicy if you're not
...When I am looking for hotels in India, I often start by looking for so-called 'Heritage Hotels' since these can be fascinating old period buildings. When looking for a place in Hyderabad I found only one heritage hotel listed despite LOTS of googling and checking travel forums and this was the Taj Mahal in the Abids district of the city. Heritage it might be but nobody seemed to be suggesting...
Advantages: Clean, comfortable, close to the porn! Disadvantages: Limited Dining, crap bar and dirty lobby toilets
...? There are several so-called international chains, but most of these are far short of the international standard. There are local independent hotels but only one was reviewed favourably on any site that I checked. Or there is The Chandela, which is part of the Taj group. The Taj it ain't but it is good enough.
Arrival and The Lobby
I had booked a transfer from the airport and, sure enough...
Advantages: One of Indias most famous buildings, most well preserved and architecturally beautiful tomb in the world Disadvantages: None
...The Taj Mahal in Agra has to be one of the classic images of India and one of the World's major landmarks.
