I think Ive made up my mind and decided to go to India again in 2 years. Gonna try and make it for a long time but I guess we will see. Probably go south and help out at the Madras Crocodile Bank again and see if I can help out in any way with tiger conservation projects.

I want to try and get to Pakistan during this trip to visit Manghopir in Karachi where you can find lots of mugger crocodiles. Folklore says that these crocs were the head lice of a Sufi Saint which have grown into crocodiles. Somehow I find this story hard to believe but I love to see and experience the ways local populations interact with wildlife and build this wildlife into their culture.
