In that vehicle without a gun or radio, tall grass next to the road, big cat country with lots of deer. That can turn into a rodeo real quick. Exciting!!!

Very cool! I've been to Mumbai, Pune, Dehli, Dehraduhn, and Mosoori the last few years. Never saw much wildlife except the black faced langurs and something they called a red arrsed monkey. I really like a lentil soup they served at breakfast called sambal? The best Indian food I have ever had was in A couple of restaurants in Nottingham and Hinckley in England. I was really fascinated near Dehraduhn to see people actually living a stone age life. Thatch huts and absolutely no modern conveniences, as we drove by in a Land Rover. Odd!
