Where I stayed
We arrived in Tanah Rata at about 4pm and were dropped off outside Daniels Lodge where we appreciatively breathed in the cool mountain air, we took a look around and decided to look elsewhere for comparison, the two Swiss guys stayed in tow
After reading the menus at a few places we stumbled upon Kumar's which was heaving with people and we decided to share a banana leaf mutton curry and a type of tandoori chicken thali with a huge naan bread. Both, with drinks came to 20 Ringett's, 4 Pounds, we couldn't complain, it was so tasty. We got back to the guesthouse and again tried to get our planning brains to work which took a long, long time. The early night that Andrew has been promising himself for the last few days remains elusive. Poor thing.
Eventually we made some decisions and booked some flights to and around Indonesia after swiftly skim reading the Lonely Planet and the Rough Guide the former we have managed to steal from the Irish as they are sadly heading home in a couple of weeks after 12 months on the road. It wasn't long before midnight by the time everything was confirmed but now we are so glad that we have some direction again. We have a day of freestyle trekking planned for tomorrow so that should be fun, I'm hoping one of us doesn't manage to fall off the edge of a hill or gets bitten by a snake, apparently there are loads of them here but its the ones with the blue tail, the Coral snake, that you need to be wary of they are a thousand times more poisonous than the others - eek!
