Himalaya

Day 41: Srinagar

Michael Palin - Himalaya'Where are you from?' shouts one man.

When we tell him he shouts manically back.

'England! Fish and Chips! Bangers and Mash! Marmite Sandwiches! Good Heavens!'

August, they say, had been a good month for Indian tourists. Then came the September violence and 30 per cent of the bookings were cancelled immediately.

I go out again on the lake at dusk. The rain has cleared the air and the water is a mirror, reflecting a huge golden sunset. It's ironic that of all the places I've been on my journey so far, this should be the closest I've come to perfect peace.
