the hotel is nice from the outside, and has a lovely cafe and also surprisingly a lift, but the rooms are very basic and poor aircon that keeps you awake with noise and lack of cool temp, the power keeps cutting out and the internet is all but useless

It was all good and as soon as we had passed a little mama went back to her baby. Very cool!
From there we moved onto Mudumalai Tiger Preserve for one night. We did a bit more safari-ing here and saw more ...
... that I'd have to play one more round with Abhu before I could relax and escape for good in the morning. Sure enough, there he was waiting at the front of the hotel. If he had been doing stretches to warm up, I probably would have been surprised. I went in hard to start and managed to get away after a protracted conversation with a promise to pass his card onto anyone I met who was heading to Mysore.
Dinner, bed and then onto Ooty the next morning.
