 Loved  the  pleco  shot!  You  badly  missed  Koi  carp  and  TIGER  SHARKS!
 
 And  you  know  why  I  missed  the  trip;  Yeti  spotting  was  more  important.   Smile

 Thanks  to  Marcus  and  Chinny,  we  had  a  great  trip!  
 
 Balaji,
 Great  write  up  -  as  usual   Thumb Up  
 
 Sai,  Bala,  Shankar  -  you  are  all  excused  for  not  coming.  But  Iam  still  looking  out  for  the  chicken-guy  who  got  married  6  months  back  and  still  honey  mooning!!!  
 
 Shankar,
 I  have  the  3  badis  from  the  trip.
 
 Sai,
 We  collected  awsome  woodshrimps  for  you,  much  colorful  than   the  ones  from  Talakona.  They  are  all  waiting  for  you  in  my  Oscar  tank.   Razz  
 
 Regards
 Prasoon

 Hey  Prasoon,  Balaji,
 
 It  was  gr8  fishin  with  you  guys.  The  Puntius  after  Bumpyrideensis  is  Puntius  dorsalis
 
 Cool  snaps  by  Prasoon  and  a  hilarious  writeup  by  Balaji.  The  snake  man  is  Chime  (pronounced  as  chimmy)  Very Happy  
 
 There  is  much  more  to  cmbkm  than  this.......guess  the  chronicles  will  continue.
