I did not book anything yet and I am running out of time because I do not know which one to choose.
      Anyone can help me, please ?

      We were in Hampi a month ago, and we bought tabla form one man who has a shop there. He prommiesed us to send the tabla to Poland, but he didn't do so. We called him and he said that he needs more money, because the tabla is very heavy and he needs to pay more for the delivery. We would like to finish the transaction, but he doesn't speak english very well and I heve spent a lot of money on the calls to India ..and still ...we don't have his datas to send him money ... We need someone who could go to him and talk, sb to send the money..we need sb to help us. Please ...Magda and Pawel

    • How long stay?

      by scott18 Online Now Jan 5, 2006 at 11:43 AM

      We're visiting Goa for 2 weeks soon and would love to visit Hampi by train.
      The train schedule is such that we can stay for either 1 day or 3 days at Hampi.
      It seems a long way to go for only 1 day, but is there enough to warrant 3 days stay? (bearing in mind that the train journeys take about 9 hours, so we would give up almost 5 days in Goa)

      Views will be most welcome!
