    A Pleasant Travel MemoirThe initial chapters are somewhat typical as Tony and Ludmilla try to overcome their initial revulsion to the dirt, beggars, poverty, and chaos of tourist travel in India But eventually they begin to see the hospitality and charm of ordinary Indians The last half of the book is often charming Overall the book is a good introduction to a longer visit to India in their case 6 months It covers many of the major tourist sites in Western and Southern India without trying to be a guide book Essentially it is a well written journal memoir of both the pleasures of meeting ordinary people except for the ever present touts in most tourist places and the hardships of overland travel bus and train for those on a limited budget I recommend it for anyone interested in travel to India or wanting an arm chair travel experience.
