We aware in our jungle enclave a solid hour before the alarm is due to ring this give us an opertunity to lie motionless under our mosquito net and play a game of “guess that sound” it’s mostly crickets and bird calls but occasionally there is something a little more guttural sounding and we tense a little.
This was an amazing place to spend a night, having arrived late it was nice to see the place in daylight. It turns out that one of the sounds we could hear was a peacock perched hight in a tree squawking at the arrival of a new day.
A massive breakfast prepared us for the climb ahead. We set off for Sirigiya at 7 am in the hope of beating some of the crowds and the hottest part of the day.
The climb involved a massive number of steps and about halfway up I was drenched in sweat and my legs began to ache. But I pressed on.
The view from the top of nothing short of spectacular. We found shade and rested awhile before the descent.
Day 9 saw us up sticks again and drive on towards Kanday. These was more drive by shooting on route.
We settled into yet another wonderful guesthouse and we had a pretty lazy evening.
Going to eat as much Kanday as we can in the morning.
