Himalaya

Day 4: Fatehjang

Michael Palin - HimalayaCries of 'that's far enough!' fade into the distance as we hurtle through a set of grand gates, and up garden paths, eventually pulling to a halt at the front of a large white mansion with wide, presidential steps leading up to a towering columned portico.

I'm told it's modelled on the Royal Military College, Sandhurst, though it reminds me more of a plantation house in Louisiana.

Now that he's orchestrated the grand welcome the Prince is off his charger and visibly relaxed. He organizes drinks for us. Retainers (probably not the right word, but they behave exactly like retainers) carry trays of Pepsi Cola out into the garden. I suggest to him that a place of this size must be an awful burden to keep up.

'It is only one,' Prince Malik replies breezily, 'I have four others.'
