It was late when we arrived and the guest houses we checked out were all full.
Some loitering locals professed to be friends to a family renting rooms and when they took us there it turned out that they were not friends really but touts after a 50 rupee pay off from the owners. It was a nice house opposite a Methodist church and the family members were pleasant and warm hearted.
We had a big bed with mosquito net in a large room with attached bathroom. This was our first mosquito net so far and was brilliant to sleep under. I could hear the mossies desperate to get in to suck our blood but unable to.
