Getting to Bandipur was a pretty nice experience. 1st we paid up at our GH and walked to the bottom of the street, god a bus imediatly to the bus station and got straight on another to Dumre. This took a couple of hours and then in Dumre we got straight on a truck which took us to Bandipur. The truck was full of beautiful young girls that Polina joked were my girlfriends, Polina had one sat on her lap, i had one with her head in my lap sleeping, onme leaning on my shoulder and another two in close proximity - 1 stroking my monmkey like arm hair - they love it!

Once in Bandipur we struggled to get anny accomodation - in the end we got a place where a boarding school was and it was a nice change - just a top floor room with a whole load of clutter but it was in a nice Nepalese mud style building - the people were nice and made a nice Thali for us both evenings.

Bandipur itself is a cobbled town which is almost deserted. The population of the town moved down to the plains once the threat of maleria was cleared a decade ago. Now Bandipur is a town of remains and the locals like to keep it as such to attract tourists. We saw 2 when we were there but i think they would get a lot more in winter. 1st day we got there at 2pm so i just watched a load of cricket - it was rain ing and not nice so it was fine. On our only full day we got up or some chowmein brekfast and got a guide to the caves - a nice guide of a similar age to us who told us a fair bt. It was a 1.5 hour walk down hill and the cave was stunning - Polina fell down twice ha ha! we only got a couple of leaches and as we are accustomed to them they were not too much hasstle. We walked back a 2 hour gruling walk uphil but it was better than the bus up - it would have taken ages and cost a lot more. We got a spot of lunch and then it rained, and rained and rained! We did nothing and got bored but its cool, we have seen everything here so tomorrow we will head off to Gorkha after our Chowmein brekfast.
