Day 6: 3:10PM - Welcome to Orissa

We have just had to pay our first bribe, 200 Rupees at the entry to Orissa.

"You want to drive through Orissa? Have you got a special 'Orissa permit'?"

"No" said Nick, getting out all the papers for the vehicle

In the back, Ivan got out his wallet and pulled out 200Rs.

"Oh," said the guy in police uniform, "it seems everything is in order. Sorry for the inconvenience"

We drove off into the next state, leaving Andhra Pradesh behind. One of the drivers in our vehicle has no driving license.

Shortly after this checkpoint a sign by the side of the road read...

"Welcome to Orissa"
