We are planning to visit Togo in July. We will be in the country for 5 days. Does anyone know of a reliable Taxi service who can drive us around the country. We have set agenda which starts at the Ghana border to Lome and to the Northern part of Togo and back to the Ghana Border.
We will be visiting Togo in July of this year. We arrive in Accra during the middle of the day. We would like to get to Lome by evening. We will have some luggage as well. What is the best approach for this situation? I have read that one get Togo Visa at the border. How long does it take? If I left at 2:00 PM from Accra will I make it to the Visa office on time? Once you cross the border from Ghana into Togo, how far is Lome? Is it easy to find transportation there? Lastly, is the return back to Accra straightforward. I will have a visa for Ghana as I land in that country

Hello all, My work approached me about traveling to Hyderabad for work. I've never been to India before and I am in general a little anxious about leaving the United States. I was curious how Americans are perceived there. I remember seeing some radicals on the news in past years, is this still a reality or are there other security concerns? I guess what I am looking to know, is that should I feel alarmed at all about exploring the city after work? Thanks, CH

Hey VTers! A friend of mine is going to Hyderabad for a conference and I might as well accompany her (we plan to continue to Kerala later). I wouldn't like to sit in a hotel for a few days straight though. So, I'm wondering, would it be OK for me to walk the streets and discover the wonders of Hyderabad all by myself? Or will it be too much of a hassle? /I'm blonde, quite tall, can throw a punch and swear freely if needed :-D/ No offense, just trying to calculate the odds of survival here :) Birx

I am visiting a friend of mine in Hyderabad and I want to know if it would be safe to wear my military uniform my first few days there. I only own one pair of non-military clothes( jeans and a wrinkled t-shirt), and I already told my friend that I would be wearing my uniform. Should I rethink this and wear something else instead or am I just a little paranoid?
Hi - we're coming next weekend for a short visit (Fri-Mon). Was just wondering where the absolute BEST biryani is, the best (local) shopping (no malls!), and the best place for street foods. Any food I should not miss? Also - if we want to do Film City one day (still undecided), will we be able to do the rest of the major sights in a day? Should we travel around by rickshaw or get a taxi for the day? Any other advice appreciated. And finally, is it as hot there now as it is here in Mumbai???

I could sure use some advice. I'm in my later 50s and a few times each year I visit my company's Hyd office which is about 2 miles from the Manohar hotel at the old airport. I hear the new airport is about 20 miles outside of town. How much time should I plan in my schedule to travel from the new airport to the Manohar, (or to the old airport)? Thanks so much! :-) Datojow
Hi to all Globetrotters out there! We might get posted this summer to either Mumbai or Hyderabad. My first thought was "Wow!", but what do I really know in order to make a decision for the next 3-4 years? I did some research on Mumbai, but the internet only gets you so far. We're in Ottawa, so no, I cannot hop on a plane to check it for myself. What I have heard, read, etc. fascinates me extremely! However, we're looking at starting a family, i. e. have a baby while we're over there and the extreme pollution in the major cities scares me. We've been posted to Damascus in the past, which was certainly not a candidate for any environmental awards, but tolerable for 2 years. Can anyone enlighten me a bit? How is the climate in/ around Hyderabad? Is it dry, is it humid (I'm pretty good with heat). Is it a major earthquake area? What about crime? Are there some ex-pats? Bigger hotels, good restaurants, English movie theatres? How about getting about? For any international flights out, where would one fly (which airlines are operating?)? How easy/ advisable are trips by car into the surrounding area? How about catching anything, if one is reasonably careful. Mind you: We're really not the paranoid cliche of North-Americans that spray everything with Lysol, who end up attracting all kinds of things anyways. I'd be so grateful, if someone out there could find the time to answer some of my questions. If there's anything you'd like add, please feel free. It will be greatly appreciated! Safe & happy travelling to all out there! Nally
