Signature offered me a free standing bungalow. It is clean and quiet but sits a few blocks walk from the main strip. If it hadn't rained it would be fine, but I struggled walking through the puddles each night to make my way home in the dark.
They have wifi but only in the main building with no common area to sit. Price was competitive but I would prefer to stay on the strip next time.
Like most places there is no hot water but they provided a bucket upon request.

... The Swedish girl, Bella, was just a lovely soul who added some calm and good energy to the mix. A great crew to finish my Indian adventures with that's for sure.

Had a very late night playing cards. Robert taught us a new game called “Caboo”. It's an intense mixture of memorisation and rapid reactions. Thoroughly recommend it. Although it is anti-social, requiring too much focus to allow for conversation on the ...
... many more dashes between toilets I finally fell asleep. Kate on the other hand seemed to be having a more sinister bug, she had the added bonus of vomiting and nausea. She wins. By the time morning did come I was feeling better if not dehydrated, Kate had gotten worse and it was now clear she had got my fever from a couple of days before. I knew it was my turn to look after her and went off and hunted down some water,coke ...
... and the louds noises scared the elephants leading to a stampede. The elephants didn't do much damage but the rush of people getting away from the elephants injured many! I tried to keep a bit of distance from these elephants! And, was glad that there were only two instead of the rumored 40! We ran into one of Fiona's friends and he told us a bit of what was going on. He's spent a lot of time here and been to many such celebrations. And was friends with some ...
