Pakistan to India

Written on: Sunday June 7th, 2009

A journal entry from: London to Beijing overland!!

We headed to the border at 10:30 when they opened up and it was a huge modern building with only our 25 member group in it.  This overland border in the past has been very busy but now they said they only get about 5 people a day come in.

So they let us out and into India with little hassle and we made our way onto Amiritsar where we are having 3 nights.

So we got off the truck and who's the first person I see but Amelia Kraus!  Very small world - she's travelling overland with her fiance doing pretty much the reverse of our London to Sydney trip.  So we spent the night having a few beers and catching up and comparing travel stories - oh a fitted in a bit of swimming which was great after our last 2 weeks on the road in the desert!

So we made it through Pakistan which was nice to get through and hopefully we wont have anymore police escourts!

Cheers for now Heather and Russell.
