TEN YEARS AND TEN DAYS. A 528-page Memoir. Christopher Titmuss. Life for six years as a Buddhist monk. One circle of the Earth.

For example, British tourists and travel agents were disgruntled with the £98.00 visa charge (the British government charge even more for Indian citizens to secure a tourist visa for the UK), plus sending in the passport, photo and visa forms to the Indian High Commission. One small error or oversight in the form could result in delays in securing the visa. Continue reading
