Michael Palin - HimalayaHe picks a glass up from the table.

'Even a simple thing like this glass. How I hold it. In my right hand, never my left. I should always drink sitting down, never standing up. I should look into the glass as I drink.'

He puts the glass down and looks across the table at me, almost defiantly.

'I do all these things not just because it says so in the Koran, but also because I know they are good for me.'

Tomorrow Azam will become engaged and they will have a big party. He doesn't know when they'll marry. It could be a year, two, or even three years.

'Will you live together until then?'

Both he and Asim shake their heads vehemently.

'Oh, no. No. Sex before marriage is out of the question.'
