A fast mountain stream flowed past our village home stay. It rained heavily during the night and I thought it was pouring when I woke up but it was only the rushing stream. The village has set up some amazing toilets which consist of a hole in the ground strategically placed above a concrete channel into which some of the stream has been diverted. You are actually sitting above constantly flowing water. I didn't ask where the water went and I didn't want to know. It was very quiet in the village at night with only the occasion bark from a dog. Roosters herald the coming of morning. We had mosquito nets but I was not aware of any mosquitos.
