This is an excellent an truly remarkable travelogue from Vikram Seth. It makes you feel like you are there in the scene he narrates. There are moments when you would feel like closing your eyes and dwel into the described scene for a while before proceeding further. A good book to settle down with in the couch on a lazy day!
