    ... close to the water - we were in the prime viewing spot for this. This is the India I wanted to see - I'm so impressed with what the Parks and Forest Service is doing here. Apparently there are tigers in the reserve, but these are not usually seen by tourists. Although I would love to see a tiger, I appreciate that this place is a wildlife reserve and not a zoo. Good news - our hotel has a 'beer bar' so we availed ourselves of this before ...

    ... get them so one isn't worth it". As you can see from the tiring conversation that's probably a bit hard for you to follow, we walked away with no beer. We sat at the top of the boat reading while we cruised to where we'd dock for the night. There were 8 geckos on the boat and a whole lotta bugs, we played card games and had dinner at 8pm.

    ... a new line in the tree which then drips latex for approx. two hours.

This mixture is then put out in trays which then harden into "mats" which are put out on a line to dry. We passed several lines with these mats drying and they looked exactly like a row of nappies. The mats are then smoked in ...

    ... for movie night to turn into slapstick comedy hour, with everyone cramming into a queen size bed for another round of shena****ns, a bit of wrestling, and cracking jokes till the wee hours of the night.

    The next day we relocate to a more spacious place, located only a few houses over, which Stef had found earlier in the morning. Our new home offered a nice view of the surrounding tea plantation, and much to our delight, a large yard with a fire pit. ...
