From Kathmandu to Kandy Anne Mustoe
Virgin Publishing Ltd, Great Britain, 2001
Mustoe, an English schoolteacher, made an amazing bicycle journey from Nepal to Sri Lanka, spurred on by a man she saw praying to Hanuman in the middle of a hectic Udaipur street. She decided to ride through the Indian subcontinent?and back three millennia?to the origins of the Ramayana. With her chosen method of transport, she was able to interact with local people and learn of their customs and daily lives in ways closed to the conventional traveller.
