Around The World in 66 Days

2/16/2013: After a couple of days at Kaziranga, we were getting a bit restless. Due to bandits or other unknown reasons, a lot of the area around Kaziranga is a restricted zone. After the fiasco trying to get the India visa, I was not about to get involved in additional paperwork with the Indian government.

So, we took a car to Namieri, 200KM and five hours driving away. The one really cool thing about Namieri was that the road was in really bad condition, so there was no traffic streaming past the hotel. Also, it was allowed to walk around inside the park as well as some rafting trips in the river.
