Amritsar

I had some days to spend in Amritsar. Amritsar is the holy city of the Sikhs - containing their beatiful Golden Temple. Amritsar was also the location of one an important historical event in Indian history, a gathering and subsequent slaughter of hundreds of Indians, fueling their fight for Independance from England.

"I think it quite possible that I could have dispersed the crowd without firing but they would have come back again and laughed, and I would have made, what I consider, a fool of myself." — Dyer's response to the Hunter Commission Enquiry.
(The troops were commanded by British Brigadier-General Reginald Dyer).

Shimla to Amritsar

It was cold when I woke up. I had had a great nights sleep for the first time in weeks due to fresh mountain air. Someone was knocking on my door, and looking at my watch I realised that it was only 6 o'clock in the morning. I had only slept 5 hours! I ignored the knocking and went back to sleep. 7 o'clock the knocking commenced once again. Ignored.

GO! .....?

Actually, Mr Enfield ran into a few more problems. I can hear some of you laughing (... Espen?) - My motorcycle decided to take up smoking. And as you know, smoking can seriously damage one's health.

First of all, thanx for signing my guestbook - also you guys who left private ones - I have read them all!

India - first impressions

India is chaos, colour, smell, dirt and dust. And much much more. After landing in Delhi it was time for passport control and I was a bit amused. Two indian officials in fancy uniforms, grown up men in their fifties with round faces hidden behind the largest black mustashes you can imagine came strolling towards me. Serious faces. Very important. Holding hands. Say what?

Leaving Bangkok - & Indian inflight movie

Yup, I have made it to India! Actually - the easiest stretch of the journey so far in traveltime :) The border between Myanmar and Bangladesh has been closed since I don't know when and is not about to open anytime soon. So: Air India to the rescue. It was a small compromise to my asia-by-land plan, but if you gotta go - you gotta go.

  • He insisted.... ;-)

    Check out the website of my brother, Ib Knutsen! He is currently working at a UN office in Nairobi, Kenya - and he is a bit more advanced as a webmaster than I am. You will find photos, videos, essays and articles and loads of tips and tricks.

    One of his latest projects was the making of a rap video for Nairobi rappers - definetly worth checking out!
