Farewell Manali

These photos are from the last few days we spent at Manali while recuperating from our tiring trek in the Zanskar. We stayed at a fabulous place called "Hotel Manali Continental", where we were treated more like members of a family rather than tourists. It was kind of an emotional farewell to our hosts who offered us a very comfortable oasis from all the chaos of the Manali town.

After Manali, the group split up as all of them wanted to do different things for their last few days in India. Yvan and Chris had a week of stay left, so they left straight for Delhi and than for Agra. Felix was going to be around for another two weeks, so he left for Amritsar and than Dharamsala along with Pat and Julie. Nat had 10 days left, so she stayed with me till the festival of Dushehra started in the Kullu valley and than we went to Dharamsala, to Delhi and Agra.
Chris and Yvan decided to do the Delhi-Agra thing by themselves and they went through lots of troubled waters. To read more about them, you can check Chris's blog.
