great character but don't expect to sleep. We had the best room in the house but shared the balcony with an old boiler that needed stoking all hours of the night by a boy who didn't quite appreciate that rattling an ash pan two feet away from my head might perhaps disturb my sleep!

Feeling slightly fatigued we just had lunch in the guest house then had a lazy afternoon to avoid the midday heat. Feeling fresh and rested we headed down to the lake to explore the gattes and temples. The photos of this such lake look absolutely stunning so we were all quite excited to see it in person.

" I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
