    Beds a bit like old hospital beds but nice enough.

    I stayed in the olde empire. it was nice experience. I liked the wooden house and the main central location. the balcony in the second floor is the "cherry" of the hotel with cozy chairs and beautiful design.
    The rice and curry in the restaurant downstairs is also amazing.

    The cons are the not so clean sheets and cold water in the shower.

    ... where the focus was on the bowler's hand and where it is when it releases the ball and then moving as quickly as they can either back or forward. Simple drill but effective as if they make up their mind and move too late they are unlikely to score as many runs. He immediately noticed that nearly all of the boys didn't use their back foot as a strong base and that they moved this foot so their toe was touching the ground and it was vertical causing the boys to lose their ...

    ... to ignore them. The Botanical Gardens came next. Best seen early morning or late afternoon. Needless to say we arrived at midday for a two hour stay. We really must learn about the food ordering. Having ordered a vegetable curry and rice I was presented with six bowls of vegetables and enough rice to feed a family of four. Cost about £4. We will not be eating this evening! Jeanette's ankle is now fully walkable. She let slip that she had ...

    ... 1. It was lovely... from the outside. Ok so we didn't actually go in but the intention was there. Instead we went to a nice restaurant after getting lost for 50 minutes, but it was worth it when we got there. The food was delicious and the views even better. It was called Bamboo Gardens and it lived up to its reviews. A few mojitos later we went back to the hotel on another climb up the mountain but this time on a Tuk Tuk which we thought we would have to help push at one ...

    Today we packed our bags, once more, had breakfast and headed downstairs to meet our driver, Chamee. We arrived at the reception but we did not find our guy, he sent another person to take us on our 18 day journey without telling us. Not cool, we did not know what kind of car he had, if he had air-con, how his driving skills were and as soon as we drove out of the hotel parking, he got arrested by the police. ...

    ... tea museum. He looked a bit pushed for time but obliged, Raju's English wasn't great so it was difficult to tell him not to worry about it. The trip to the museum was the quickest I'd ever experienced, he pointed out the best bits, all in all we were done in about 30 minutes. Despite his poor English, he liked to crack the odd joke, my personal favourite pointing at a picture of some cows ...
