XX Heiko goes Allahabad I

Oh well flight no 18  from delhi to Allahabd should become exciting…the airplane was quite small and having that special side motors…..arriving safely on kind of a ilitary base airport.

Sitting next to me Anadi, a very mysterious lady which I should visit later on.


Leaving one friend in Delhi behind, meeting the next friend from our studying times in the UK…..my lovely room…


First trip with Summit & Shanaya…..visiting the Ghandi museum…

And then making our way towards the first holy place which I should see in India…….“Triveni Sangram“….where the river Ganges meets the Yamuna river as well as the invisible Saraswati river…..thousands of people around….me being the only foreigner there.

Making a little boat ride towards the place where the 3 rivers are meeting up together.

Back on land…strolling around a little bit  before leaving that holy place.

Stop over – chicken place – probably not the best place for any vegetarian people or for people focusing too much on hygiene.



Appetizer = street food


Main dish = one of the lovely dinner’s at Summit’s place. Yumyum.


We proudly present „Scamper – the dog“…..short story about that cutie……once he is very excited about visitors he jumps up on them; but not only that he jumps…..if you are an unlucky one then he also might pee on you as he is so happy to see you.  What a lovely way to welcome a guest….but as far as I remember I was quite lucky and didn’t get any wet.


Visiting Summit’s mom…

I loved that nice little bar!  That’s the place where I got to know „Old Monk“…..don’t miss out on trying it once you are in India.

Discovering the environement…..walking around Allahabad….

Right before left?  Left before right ? – Nevermind….cow goes first and the pedestrians, scooters, cars, Tuk Tuk’s, Riksha’s are finding their way through.


Yummy yummy again.

Oh well, poor bridal couple…..while everyone was having dinner and talking together   those two had to stand for hours in the spotlight receiving presents, being photographed and filmed and were supposed to smile most of the time.

A little goodbye present from Shaniya….so sweet….I still have it and it got a nice little space.
