    The Maruni Lodge was great. Unfortunately you can no longer stay at the Tiger Tops Lodge so world renowned till the government stepped in and closed it down because it was inside the park parameters. Best part though is that Gauri Malakar was a manager at Tiger Tops so she will make it all perfect. Rooms comfortable. Quiet other than the noises of nature. Food excellent, gardens very nice. Shower is all in one with the bathroom...workable. Evening entertainment great. Wonderful stay.

    ... orange ball disappearing behind the mountains - whilst all the rest of the traffic whizzed past us! We finally arrived into the town of Sauraha in the Chitwan National Park around 7pm and to our jungle lodge. It was so fancy!! After a quick shower we headed to the restaurant for dinner, I had a vegetable curry with rice which had cashews in. It was the best curry I've had since being here!! But a bit more expensive at £3.50. And then another early night - still ...

    ... after I was kept up till 12 last night by 4 Nepali students from near Kathmandu who wanted me to join in their drunken spree, I managed to sneak away & get a few hours sleep before my early start. They were gone when I returned.

    There is a funny little old woman who walks around all the restaurants (got it right now Janice!) every morning, giving everyone a tika (red blob on forehead) and a few flowers. She doesn't ask for anything for this valuable service, ...

    ... all the teachers. I have enjoyed my time here and grown to really like this team of teachers. I have got into a little routine before sunset of having a beer in a little cafe and then walking home. I enjoy the atmosphere at this time of the day. On the way back, I give a pack of playing cards to the group of older men who sit and talk for hours together each day. They like ...

    ... we knew that, had he felt like it, he could have been on top of us in a matter of seconds. In fact, due to their population density within the park, being charged by a rhino is the most common life-threatening encounter that visitors face - well - besides those bollock-biting bears of course. Fortunately for us our guide had his big stick.

    ... rocks without offering any kind of viable alternative. Positive reinforcement? I don’t know. Is an elephant really going to make the connection that he earned himself a treat for not crushing his mahout to death?
