    Calcutta too, 1989, the "rat boy" was a tourist attraction.....he used to get down on his hands and knees, put food in his mouth and bang on the side of a wooden building...........
    1000s of rats then appeared, from underneath the building, that then took food from his mouth

    Oddly I thought Liverpool.

    When you go to places abroad you expect them to be "foreign", but you don't expect such an experience in the UK even though the people look like other people in the rest of the UK.

    I liked Chile, Peru, Ecuador and Argentina. Paraguay and Bolivia less so though La Paz was OK. If you can make it to the Galapagos, do.
    And if you don't make it back, even better.

    I did the Inca Trail in 2014. Highly recommend, but you need to get reasonably fit. (The quarry trail is supposed to be just a good, and a lot less busy).

    If you book with Intrepid, you can pay with Tesco vouchers - they often do a 4x deal.


    Stuff that, they can winch me up.
