... After a google maps trawl we decided perhaps an Indian meal could be the go this evening and we set off in the opposite direction, unfortunately the front of the hotel was on the opposite street we had first thought. Realising it eventually we turned and followed the original plan in the other direction. We passed the area where the place was supposed to be without success so decided to carry on to the waterfront where other places we knew ...

... days before they head to China. They've never stayed in one place for so long so I think it's quite a different treat for them but one that's much needed.

It's called the rafflesia and the biggest one was in bloom the day we got there- they only usually stay open (and therefore big and therefore interesting) for a few days a month.
