Where I stayed
We then hit Devi falls, a waterfall named after a Swiss lady who fell in it and was swept away. Not very spectacular in the dry season actually, but fun. Our taxi driver said there were some excellent caves over the road so we headed over
Back at the hotel Dan was in a bad way and the trip out had completly exhausted Dad so they stayed in bed while Mum, Mikey and I mooched about shopping, drinking hot chocolate and enjoying the street stalls. As it was too cold to wash my hair without a hairdryer I decided to have my hair cut, which was pretty different. The hair dryer was powered by two car batteries!
By the time we got back to the hotel, Dad had revived enough to come out and have a tea while we had cocktails at Moonshine, and to eat a fair bit of all of our meals at Tea Time Bamboostan Cafe (yes - mad name, but nice place). Neither Mum or Dad felt worried about staying up to see in the new year so we droppped them back at the hotel about 10, where they could keep an eye on poor puking Dan.
New Years is clearly the one day of the year the locals stay up past 10 and the streets were packed
It was great to skype everyone at Charlotte's birthday party as they were getting ready for a long night. They seemed very confused about where on earth we were and why it was cold. (Apart from Olaf that is, who is so intellegent he understands everything instantly) He was showing off standing on his own - very clever.
Happy Happy birthday Char xxxxx
