Across the gloomy, empty dining room of the old Hotel Panorama, Katmandu, an elderly woman sits alone. Her toast and marmalade might have been a clue as to her nationality, but, convinced she is a German, the callow Australian sitting two table away greets her in what he assumes is her native tongue... She replies to his "Guten Morgen' in ringing Home Countries English. 'Good Morning, young man', following that revelation with an invitation to join her to take tea. Her name, which he hears imperfectly, is either 'Pritichard' or 'Prichett', but she quickly tells him that people usually address her as Mrs P. She is, she explains, from Yorkshire and is almost halfway through her annual, solo pilgrimage to India, to buy a good supply of tea in Darjeeling. This year, 1971, she has decided to spend a couple of days exploring Katmandu and surrounds on foot. The young Australian and his partner are on their way from Melbourne to the University of York. Fate and a bus crash sees these three Yorkshire bound travellers unexpectedly sharing railway compartments, local buses, and other public transport as they make their way towards Europe following the Hippie Trail. As they traverse countries such as Afghanistan and Iran - dangerous places, then and now - Mrs P relates harrowing, hair raising, often hilarious accounts of her past adventures. This is the story of a brief, surprising companionship.
