A Great Couple of Days

The last two days have been so wonderful but no pics yet as I still have to trawl through 350 pics!
Yesterday Mandy went out on the bike with Babblu (the top guide here), he is such a sweet guy and knows where to find everything - we were out for four hours mainly off the tourist trail, a surreal few hours, saw some fabulous creatures and birds. Pics will be uploaded in due course.
Today Rox and I together with Mel and Kim (researchers) went up with Babblu to Bandhavgarh Fort - brilliant! We felt like we were at on the top of the world, the views were breath-taking. We ate a picnic breakfast surrounded by Griffon and other vultures cruising both above and beneath us! We also entered a small cave to watch Tomb Bats - hundreds of them, the guano needed a strong stomach!!!
We only have two more full days here before the long 3 day trek back home. Another 16hr overnight train, one nights stay in Delhi, Flight to Heathrow, then a night in London before heading by tube, train and coach back home.
