    ... floating down the river, left overs and all! Just a gentle reminder we are still in India.
    We headed to shore again at about 5pm and tied of to a palm tree in a palm tree forest which seemed to be home to a small village. The driver said he had to get the chicken for tonights dinner. He said we could have gone with him to watch the chicken be prepared (by this he meant killed, hung and plucked!) to which I quickly refused. In hindsight I think I was a little ...
