      Situated on a hill on the outskirts of the city, we were pleased to have the quiet and the breeze that this afforded. We had the large double and it was spacious and airy with a lovely verandah to sit in. We found a local restaurants within walking distance for lunch and went into the city for dinner on the first evening and had a meal in the homestay the other, before our early start in the morning back home. All the food at Graceful was good and tasty, and Giles, Sylvia and Elsie thoughtful and helpful hosts.

We dropped in at "Red Rooster," earlier and witnessed a live chicken being weighed, strangely we then left and returned an hour later to pick up a plastic bag...the Indian version of "drive through." Overall, our trip here has been an adventure and we couldn't be happier, but now we head out into what's known as the more traditional India. Not sure when we'll next have internet access but we look forward to keeping you ...

Indians sometimes expect you to read their mind which can lead to interesting situations. We agreed, as we could see how important this night was for their school.
