Chitwan. – Trisuli centre.
Knock knock, 7 o’clock.
7:30 breakfast and rushing back to the room, packing was easier this time.
A coffee in the garden, Suk came to say goodbye. We will keep in touch for sure.
09:00: Schumacher brought us to the bus. We called him this, because one time when we were close to the gate of the hotel, without braking he swirled the jeep around the corner.
A tourist bus, this time sitting in the front, plenty of space for our legs.
2 ½ hours later we stopped at the Trisuli centre.
It was good to see Dill (the rafting guide) again. Next September he will open his own rafting business with his nephew. They will do a combination of trekking and rafting.
Dill made it possible that we could go rafting for one day tomorrow, but we already decided to stay only one night and then go to Kathmandu. There we can really relax, we even decided to go and have a beauty day: massage, facial and manicure.
So, when Dill told us we could go rafting, after a short talk, we agreed to stick to the original plan.
Next time in Nepal I can do the 12 days raft/trek.
Celebrating our decision with a beer.
We spend our time sitting on the beach at the riverside.
It is very hot. Later we sat on the balcony of the Balcony Café of H.E. with a beautiful view.
Diner and a drink with Peter – the volunteer we met in Bandipur – and Dill.
Around 1:00 we crossed the bridge to our tent. It was not cold at all, a beautiful clear sky with millions of stars. Almost fell out of bed a few times, but then slept unconscious.
Dill slept on the beach with the dog, which was a safe feeling for us, for the rest completely deserted on the riverbank.
