A busy day was planned for today. With so much to do, we set off early to breakfast at the lobby. The restaurant manager, Pawan, recognised me from the last time I visited, which was really sweet.

The biggest threat was getting separated from the group and being lost. Many tour groups, school children, Chinese tourists and a small spattering of foreigners.
