A lot has happened in the last week.. We went to Chitwan, on a island in the middle of the jungle, there was only 10 of us there and we went on 3 elephant safaris, a jungle walk and a boat ride.. It's just amazing to be sitting on a elephant.. the rhinos couldn't see us, and they're not that afraid of elephants, so we just had to go searching for them and just watch them.. we saw 3 huge wild boars running in front of us while we were walking in the jungle.. we were told to run in zigzag or hide behind a tree if a rhino charged us.. Very reassuring.
We also came across tigers footprints and saw the famous marsh mugger..
We are now in Pokhara, we went paragliding yesterday, we were flying well above 1,600 meters, It was an amazing feeling to fly among the vultours..My "co-pilot" was russian, and he looked like of those James Bond baddies, he kept singing a creepy song throughout our flight, I thought he was gonna drop me in the lake.. He even let me steer the "sail", but he took it back when I headed straight for the lake..
We had a very quiet Christmas, I was dying to hear some xmas music so I asked the manager of the restaurant we were having our dinner in.. She went out to get a CD, I was so excited.. but it was a pirated CD with at least 100 songs on it, and for some reason, George Michael was on the list.. some people couldn't take listening to "wake me up before u go go" (aleks I thought of u!), so she stopped the CD...
We are leaving tomorrow to go on a 5 day trek and spend New Year in the Himalayas!

elephant transport sounds just right for seeing animals in perspective. You must have felt very powerful as you looked down on the jungle world. Not too sure I'd like the para gliding but glad you did. Enjoy all and a very happy New Year to you both.
