I really enjoyed this beautiful spacious bungalow in the middle of the rice fields and specially this huge swimming pool, where real swimming was my daily practice :) Friendly staff, good service and very nice room with loooots of light.

I had an Ayurvedic consult first up, which was enlightening and so true, it explained me perfectly.
I then braved the Sacred Monkey Forest. It was still busy even though the bus loads of day trippers hadn't turned up yet. The monkeys are too used to people and unfortunately you are encouraged to buy bananas etc for them, ...
... day. It's spectacular and peaceful. The people are nice and the food is delicious. I love the chilled spiritual vibe and it oozes beauty from within. The weather was amazing - hot, sunny days, slightly cooler at night. The sunrises watched from my balcony I will never forget, I will never forget how happy I felt being so isolated...I think that's a good frame of mind to be in at times. To be honest, I didn't want to leave....could easily have spent a decent amount of time ...
