After a very long 16 hr on the overnight train (seemed like days) we arrived at Umaria station and taken by jeep to junglemantra. Arriving at first light was amazing, the sounds of the jungle surreal and there was a mist over the grassland and the forest, seemed like a dream.
We were awakened ay 3.30am by a pack of very noisy Jackals!
Tomorrow we start our "work", the first assignment is helping the staff - boys/men from the local tribal village- improve their English skills. Hopefully in the next few days we will get out to see Tigers. I will update the blog when I can, we have to come 3km to use the internet!

  1. Hi Mandy, So relieved that you are both there safely. What a journey! It looks like paradise there with so many beautiful birds and cute monkeys seen already. How are you both coping with the temperature? Good luck with the English classes! Love, Mummy T. XX
