... we don’t know but speaking of being drawn in, Scotty was
literally drawn in by the puppy here as he tugged and played on Scotty’s
trouser leg, almost pulling him into the encampment. Apparently this puppy was
taken in by the owners here when they found him defending himself from 4 adult

... 2014 were to change the face of our trip....forever! On this fateful night the four of us decided to wonder down the main road to find a place for dinner. Keeping to our strictly non Indian diet (after a while going without, you really start craving western food!) we saw this place offering three beers for Rs100...that's £1, how could we refuse!?

Patnem has been good to us - tranquil, quiet, peaceful, an effective place to re-charge the batteries. We are now ready for the second half of our Indian trip...
We wish everybody well - and thinking of you.
