Was having a chat with a friend in the travel industry and he related an incident that took place yesterday.
A group of tourists were being bused in to the Taj Hotel. The bus was stopped at the Elephant House roundabout and told that it could not proceed any further due to security considerations.
The travellers were advised to get out and walk to the hotel from there.
Several frantic telephone calls later the bus was allowed to go into the hotel and deposit the guests.
This morning a similar problem arose with tourists leaving the hotel - the bus was not allowed to leave the premises. Again more telephone calls and finally they were allowed to leave.
Land like no other, and this is a full week before the 'Official' high security period.
