Farewell, India

... to the machine and it was sitting there on top. Very nice of him to do, but
when I phoned my bank a second time, they said it is impossible to reinstate a canceled card.

So, I didn't buy a new camera, and now I have no bank card. Luckily (and I hate that I am going to praise my bank, because their practices at home annoy me to no end) CIBC will courier me a new card in three days, no charge. I just need to give them a hotel address. I should have ...

... of wells and swamps so the mossies were rife! After 2 nights there I found myself a lovely beach hut down the road and felt so relieved to be walking out of the place and was very pleased with myself for getting my money back after a bit of pleading.
