... br> Leaving for Pench
We were up and ready to leave for Pench, but as usual things had to be done, the last minute bits which go with every trip, even more so with a youing company, so I went off for breakfast and Anand went off to do what guides and leaders do,

There were all these statues in there, of what god I aint ...
We left a rather wet, damp, chilly Delhi
I wonder where all the sun has gone?
