17 September 2010 - Walk with Meherwan

It had been almost a week since our last walk due to work commitments. It turns out that Meherwan was getting over a rare cold that both he and Manu had caught from one of servants from the village. It had been years since his last cold.
video: 19 sec.
Later in the day we had a "heti paus" (elephant rain) as a thunder storm arrived in time for tea. We could hardly carry on a conversation over the sound of the rain.  
I was there to check the termite traps for signs of activity, and instead got to sit out the storm for more than an hour in Mandali Hall.
