Hi Andrew,

Bring pounds and exchange locally into rupee. 'How much' is hard to say as it depends on which meals you take outside, but excluding meals it should not be more than 10-20 pound/person/day.

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]

I would say Rs.100 per meal. After all, most places charge a service charge. If the service is exceptional, anything between Rs.100 - 200.
