Beer o'clock

I thought I'd try walking up to the stupa (rather than bleedin cycle) and then walk right round the lake. Well the long sweaty walk up was fine, met a great Irish guy and we swapped travelling tales, often involving toilets. Then I walked down a massive hill to the lakeside itself, walked another hour, to then be told by a local guy that the walk right round is far too long and difficult and that I should turn back. So after 3 hours walking I turned back! It was a lovely walk though. The icing on the cake was to hear lots of rustling in the trees - then spotting loads of monkeys. One was on the ground right by me busily eating. 3 babies playing in the low branches. Wonderful - I'm glad i turned back. Obviously beer to celebrate.
Next day I decided I wouldn't be defeated by the lake. I hired a kayak and paddled right round the bloody thing! The views of the hills and the town with paragliders soaring ahead was fabulous. 4 hours sitting in a boat and I'm pleased to say my bottom was bearing up! More beer to celebrate.
Today has so far been a quiet day sitting and reading in various lakeside locations.... possibly a beer later to celebrate.

It all sounds and looks wonderful. Good idea to hire a kayak..The place where you were having a beer looks quite posh and I love the pic of the monkey up the tree. So pleased you are enjoying it all so much. X

Not very nice that the monkey on the ground was busily eating 3 babies playing in the lower branches.
