After a fantastic breakfast of puffy sweet bread, chickpea curry and treacle with banana and nuts in, Tilly and I met up with narinder again. He whisked us off to the secretariat building (tourists can't normally go here, designed by Le Corbusier).
He was with a nice French Canadian couple who gave us some good advice for Thailand.
He took us to the chipati prep area then to the top of this building for tea and food. He wanted to take us to the lake but we had to get back to the hotel to check out. I have his address and will be sending him a bday present.
