Change of address and phone number

Manali, India


Hello there to you all,

Well we hired the tabla, but haven't got round to playing them a great deal. Yes, sorry Kev, we know we're crap. They will go back to the hire shop tomorrow as we are gonna head north to Leh in the next few days.

Had a nice day today over the valley in Vashist where we walked through the forest to a very pretty waterfall.

Oh, and we've moved again. We needed a room with a bathroom (we'll spare you the details) so we're next door rocking it up in the Rockway Cottage. It's a bit more upmarket with a wood burning stove in the room, not that we need it, it's pretty warm here. The mattresses and pillows are crazy though! It's like they're made out of rock or something, very hard....

If anyone needs to call us (maybe Lucy or Luke over the next couple of weeks) then Nik has got an Indian SIM card. The number is 9816576522 - you may need a code in front of that, we'll leave you to work that one out.

We spoke to Iain, our house sitter, earlier and he spoke of torrential rain and biblical floods in the UK. Maybe the monsoon has arrived early there too........

Take care folks and have fun,

Love,

Jon & Nik

Sounds great still you two. As you say it has been THE MOTHER of all rainy seasons here. (well, it's been a bit wet.)

Just finished the 3 hour interview to be the new Jon Boy Walton! What a pain that was honestly, a logic test, an IT Test and an interview!!

Hello,
Your not crap, its the nature of the drums. Very quickly people seem to either like or not like the idea of the rythems and the sitting.
So up and on-to Laddhak. Have you any particular area in mind to stay in? How are you getting there? On the way back I took a shared jeep, Im not sure but i think it cost about 650rps and the journey took around 24 hrs. Boy i ask a lot of qeustions. Can you tell I,m a little off it. yarda yarda.
So into the changing land scape,,, oh thats buzzing it was my heart to think of you up there.
Well guys must dash.

I heard a wonderful line today and it seems quiet fitting for the moment
Jon.....Nic....
Your hearts are free, Have the courage to follow them.

With peace , Love and Respect
