    ... it was due to the amount of sweat pouring down our faces. The animals were not the happiest animals I've ever seen, but they were a darned sight happier than the goats tied up outside the temple, or the monkeys we saw yesterday, or the cows that roam the country. There were tigers, bears, jungle cats, crocs and kangaroos as well as all the African species we saw earlier this year. Home to rest, as India has taken its toll on my digestive system. The next day ...

    ... with the tricky job. I was asked to rub a lady with a deep heat cream (all over), she was so tiny possibly 10kgs. They had no idea how she got to this state but she was in chronic pain.

In the end I asked a local who put me on a bus, which ...

    ... So after a short walk we found the famous "Peter Cat" restaurant with orange turbaned men serving up Bengali specialities, after having walked past it once of course. After a delicious lunch of spicy mutton curry and chicken kebabs it was time to see the sights. First on the list was Park Lane cemetery.

    ... hard life here... I've already started planning what I want to get. A sari is certainly in order.

    Tonight we brought out the iPads because one girl was humming "Mary had a little lamb" and a lightbulb *dinged* above my head. So I taught Kushbu how to play it and she taught Puja and Muni and then I taught Seema "Twinkle Twinkle".
