Merry Christmas to everybody and I apologise for the lack of cards this year but emails have been tricky enough to get out and I think cards may have arrived for Christmas 2008....just.
I spent Christmas in the Bandhavgarh National Tiger Reserve and had a great three days there relaxing, eating lots and seeing loads of tigers. I think I saw about fifteen and got up really close to them on the back of an elephant on two days.
They are beautiful animals and quite breathtaking to see in the flesh. I also felt pretty safe on top of an elephant and did not think they would try having me for their Christmas lunch.
Along with the tigers we saw lots of birds, wild boars and various deers. In fact it was often these who gave us clues as to where the tigers were as you could see them running or making distress calls...so that was pretty handy for us.
I am now in Khajuraho which is where the temples are with all the naughty kama sutra sculptures and will be going there tomorow.
I will soon try and do another update with more info on what else I've been up to since Jodhpur.
