      ... find we got correct number of notes. We returned to the street to find the tuktuk's drivers waiting, wanting to take us to gem places. We said no thanks and headed off to walk the streets. We got to the cricket ground and ran into a guy who recognised is from the hotel. He claimed to be one of the chefs, on a morning off, and insisted on showing us around.

      ... Anyway, one women really wanted her fingers painted and didn't understand why I couldn't do it. To cut a long story short, a few minutes after I thought I'd consoled her enough, I saw her out the corner of my eye, spit at me. Like a lot of spit.
