Our next few days saw us make the journey back to Nainital. We stopped in Bageshwar to collect the rest of our stuff from the KMVN tourist bungalow and in the evening when we were looking round the local temple we ran into Sanjay and Sunil from the trek. They were staying at Sunil’s brother-in-law’s house he was provided with by the Forestry Department and invited us back for dinner which we readily accepted. The economics professor ...

Set off for a walk around the Naini lake which only took about an hour and was not exactly the most serene of strolls what with all the car horns honking but this is India and car horns are just part of everyday life. It did get quieter around the southern side so we ambled along going over our India adventure, picking ...
