A day of sightseeing

We did a lot of touristy things today, with our rickshaw driver Billau. Billau has 7 books filled with nice comments from other travellers and was keen to show them to us. For some reason, he didn't ask us to write anything.

We visited a zoo, and met with some childen on a school trip. They seemed more interested in following us around than looking at the animals, and we didn't stay long because of the heat.

Next was a cemetry - very interesting, up to a point, but I was rather bored and the heat made me rather lathargic. After this was a museum. After selling us the tickets, the ticket seller ran out of his booth and into another booth just by the entrance where he checked our the validity of our tickets before letting us in. We watched a puppet show, performed by the versitile ticket seller, and on leaving had our tickets removed by the ticket seller/master puppetter who had somehow now morphed into a security guard.

We were rather tired, so headed back to the hotel for a quick nap, before heading out for some dinner, at a beautiful hotel overlooking the large semi natural and semi man made lake that sits at the centre of the town. They had a good menu, including some English dishes so I was finally able to have a good feed without fear of nuts.
