Episode Summary

After eight days of sailing, a weak Michael Palin is propelled into big-city India. He's behind his fictional rival but forges ahead to Bombay, Poona, Madras - and then a juddering halt. Only two ships sail out of Madras, the first doesn't leave for at least three days and the second has no room for passengers. Undeterred, Michael persuades its Yugoslav master to hire him as a deckhand.moreless
