1978 India

583. India 1978 – Madras

Fortunately both an Itinerary (which provided a detailed outline of where they would stay, what they would see and what they would eat) and Doris’ notes (which often contradicted it) are with me. I’ve scanned and OCR’d the itinerary, but the notes will have to wait.


ART TREASURES TOUR OF SOUTHERN INDIA NO.111

The tour was from 23rd NOVEMBER to 13th DECEMBER 1978 and she went with WF and RK Swan before that company was bought up. See their Wiki entry, although it pertains to nothing here.
