... our egg consumption as Pete warned us we could become "egg-bound" if we ate too many! Huge thanks go to Mummy and Daddy Roberts for providing this little treat for us!! We said a sad goodbye to our new northern friends and headed to a homestay set along one of the backwater canals.

Take a few more pictures, and then try to get a Rickshaw to take us to the bus stand. It's about 600 metres but up a fearsome hill. They won't do it for less than Rs 100. It should be Rs 20.
