First week in Shimla

I'm in Shimla, India, staying at the Willows Bank Hotel on The Mall. It's not a bad place - clean and comfy rooms with wireless Internet. Someone pokes a newspaper under my door every morning before I wake up and tidies my room while I'm out. I can't say I care much for the catering but have managed to ensure an acceptable breakfast in the morning by specifying two boiled eggs cooked for 6 minutes.

There's a gym downstairs which I've used twice and is basically okay and should ensure that I don't balloon whilst staying here for the next two months. The most disappointing aspect of my location is that so far I've been unable to find anywhere to play tennis so far and consequently the racket that I brought from England lies dormant in the cupboard.
