After the early start to see Everest, I had a hot date with Snowy.

The Truck.

No, don't titter - this is the means of transport and a personal friend (or so it seems) to our guide, Ben.

Snowy is a labour of love. Five years' love to be precise. A Mercedes Benz overland vehicle with all the bells and whistles you could imagine: reclining seats, beer fridge, air con, safe, wifi, stereo system, water system, safe - and on it goes. This is no ordinary truck - this is Home for the next three and a half weeks.

Oh - Snowy delivered us from Kathmandu today to Chitwan National Park. Tomorrow we start at 6 am to spot Bengal Tigers, wash elephants and perform other sundry Monday morning tasks.

To sleep now, perchance to dream.
