Budget Bus - Tour 1979 London - Delhi/Nepal
Thanx to the greatest invetion ever-the internet. I never ever thought it would happen to get in contact with the other passengers from this trip.
Hallo Rufus, I think I`m one of your fellow passengers on the trip you mention. I entered the bus in Athens und was the only German. The football match in Cappadocia came along with a fuel shortage in this area. We were in Teheran - some passengers left us there at the airport - with the picture of Chomeini in the front window of the bus by the time when the American embassy was hijacked as we later learned. I crossed the border to India with only 25 US$ in my pockets and Australian Di helped me a lot, smile. Some of the passengers got the chance to make some money as "actors" in the movie "seawolves".
For my part, without money I got homesick after only three monthes away from home and flew back from Bombay.
It was a great time and expirience, which I will never forget allthough I have only few pictures here. Sorry for my English but on the bus I once won in Srabble. Rufus, you forgot to mention the amount of alcohol we distroyed - exept in Iran ! And using the toilet without paper just with water and the left hand.
It would be great to hear from my ex-fellow passengers.
