Early start today at 4.30 to squeeze in a ride on an elephant in the Jaldapara Wildlife Sanctuary and some one horned Rhino spotting. We were very lucky and saw four Rhinos and when we were just about to leave, a herd of Bison and a Rhino came out into open ground which was fantastic to see. Van kept her auditors cap on and was initially skeptical of the first two Rhinos we saw as they were partially submerged in water and could have been 'tied up' for us to see.
Fairly uneventful day on the road, however, as it was just us today we kept it efficient and managed to bust out a lot of kilometres in record time (for us). Along the way we had the usual spectators when we stopped and on one occasion we were asked if we wanted swim in the river with them. Unfortunately we were pressed for time, but we got a new Facebook friend out of it and hopefully we'll have more time for that sort of thing tomorow. Splashed out on the hotel as the last few days have been rock hard beds and we had the tuk tuk valet parked which was pretty novel.
