    Another Travellers tale

    I got a post card last week from my friends Charlie and Victor who went on holiday to India. They seem to have had a great time, doing loads of exciting things, they wouldn't tell me what they had done but maybe you can tell me?

    1) What month did they have their holiday in?

    2) What accommodation did they stay in?

    3) What did they drink?

    4) What dances did they learn to do?

    5) What sport did they take part in?

    6) What car did hire?

    1) <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">November</span hide>

    I won't answer the others as it would give too much away.

    Re: Another Travellers tale

    I tried that at first, but got nowhere. Now that you put it like that though, obviously they stayed <span style="background-color: #FFFF00; color: #FFFF00; font-weight: bold">in a hotel</span hide>, right?

    AND
    I'm sure they wore a U-niform and picked up a K-ilo after partying too much with M-ike and J-uliet. When they got home from the trip, P-apa was angry and S-ierra-ed them so hard on the <img src=/S/moon.gif border=0 alt=moon width=15 height=15>, they needed to go for X-ray's.
