I was on a business trip to India but had a free weekend in between 2 working weeks. Decided to fly to Nepal and visited Kathmandu. At that time a strike was announced that would lame the capital of Nepal. Decided to fly down to Chitwan Nat. Park to try and find tigers and rhinos. Went on elephant back though the park. As this was a non-planned trip I had left my own camera equipment at home and borrowed the little Kyocera camera of my bosses’ wife. Thrilling experience to find the rhinos in the man-tall grass!
