    ... days for her, we give her both, it transpires she must be blind though as takes a while for her to register what she has in her lap….. thought provoking to say the least.

    A tuk tuk back safe and sound despite our warnings.

    Friday 1st May

    Today is an auspicious day, breakfast has a view of a wedding where we see just how ornate and almost clown like the men’s attire can be. Our first stop is the botanical gardens that are ...

    The sanctity is somewhat ruined by the irreverence of two monkeys furiously copulating on the steps as we leave.

    ... dit positief op ons humeur want zo'n wiebelende hoofdjes zijn best wel grappig. Ook de eigenaars van de home stay waar we verblijven hebben van die wiebelende hoofdjes. Our driver is the first one with whom we notice clearly that he is wobbling his head like the Indians. For one reason or another this has a positive effect on our mood because these wobbling heads are really funny. Also the owners of the home stay where we are staying have these wobbling heads. We ...
