... mahogany four poster bed with mosquito nets. The hotel has been recently renovated by two Australian guys and the pool of course a recent addition. The garden is exquisitely perfumed with frangipani and lotus flowers, all frequented by butterflies, bees and birds, so a photographer's paradise.

A first for me were the ...

This too happens in India and many of the european white women I've met either just had a thing or are currently having a thing with one of the local boys in town. It to me is a bit of a patronising fashion statement type thing, or that to me is how it seems. Personally I was glad to ...
