Rickshaw Run - Half Way Where?

We're half way through the April Run and it certainly seems like half the teams are on a completely different adventure. While 50% of the Runners are getting a pummeling from the crappy roads, the other half are taking the easy route and getting more gentle massages at luxury hotels.

Some teams are enjoying a tour of India's 5* hotels

Bloody hell; it’s like they just dig a bunch of holes in a row and call it a highway over here

Chilling between the cockroaches on a plank instead of a mattress in the dodgiest town of India and we even managed to get the worst hostel of the place. There’s blood on the floor but granite floors... What else would we need? Happy days!

Morning of day nine, best hotel in history; one bed for three of us; no power; midnight interrogation by armed soldiers; unexpected 4.00am wake up call; getting dressed to candle light; mosquito breeding ground. Five out of five stars, highly recommended

I think you can judge a place by the number of taps in the bathroom and this one has eight. So yeah; it’s pretty nice

After several nights on wooden floors between cockroaches and many kilometers backtracking on the bumpiest roads through mountains between elephant tracks while searching for tigers but only finding cows, we’ve decided to treat our selfs. Luxury *****hotel it is!!
