After Delhi I went again to Manali with the bus. Dorjee a tibetan refugee as many in Manali I know since long. I was always living at his place. I been really many times in Manali, almost a local, that allows me, to walk freely and in peace with all the tourist they are there. And there are a lot of tourist, mainly from India itself. Old Manali was taking over from the tourist outside from India, the Hippies. There is a love/hate relationship in India with those tourists. They need them, but also not really like them. There is this question in India, some will ask you: ARE YOU A TOURIST OR ARE YOU A HIPPIE? But Old Manali has to offer more, if you walk out of the tourist paths. It’s very traditionell and people are super friendly. As I know some locals, I went for a walk there for meeting some people.
