Much earlier start today I was woken up at about 5.30 by the call to prayer which I tend to hear most mornings so I’ve gotten use to that but this morning the call to prayer was followed by a load of women chanting just outside my door by the sound of it! I don’t think it was me that they were chanting at but you never know!
Probably just as well I found that guesthouse house last night as after that village it was jungle and there was loads of monkeys and as much as I like monkeys, spending the night with them is not high on my list of this to do! It was cool to see them this morning though.
Short ride today I just didn’t fancy another late night and looking at the map there didn’t look as if there would be much chance of finding somewhere for a long time after Sagar.Thinking I’d found a nice hotel with wifi I was wrong! The hotel itself was ok but as for the wifi, forget it!
On the ride into Sagar I got pulled over by a man on a motorcycle who asked me to come to his school and meet his students, to which I was obviously more than happy and it was only about 400 yards back down the road.
It was only a small school with about 130 pupils aged between 7 and 11. At first they were very nervous but after a while they came out of there shells and I was completely surrounded with pupils wanting to shake my hand. Their English wasn’t that good and the only reel question they asked was what was my name!
I got the impression that it was more of an ego trip for the headmaster or whatever he was than an educational thing for the children, but hey I enjoyed it and so did the children I think!
