    Anyway there isn't really much else to tell you about the trip except how beautiful it was and to let you enjoy the photographs.

    ... hotel to find 5 guys in our room and on our balcony. They said they had to fix something and we asked if it couldn't wait until we left in 4 hours!  They of course said no and said something was burning. Whether or not this was true we let them know we were annoyed.  We packed our bags and got dinner before we caught an overnight bus to Dharamasla.
