We are now in Bhimtal. Bronchitis knocked me flat for a couple of days but I am much better now. Our house will not be available for one and a half months. I am expecting at least three months Indian time. In the meantime the owner has put us up in his hotel, Neelish Inn. We have a one room bed/sitting area with a bathroom and dressing area. The balcony is available with three meals and two tea times, laundry, housekeeping and free slow Wi-Fi is in included overlooks Bhimtal Lake. Best of all we have an unlimited hot shower, no bucket bath required and room service. The price, $1000.00 USD/month. I could get very accustomed to this. However, in view the owner is getting twice the money from us, I can see where he may try and drag this out. At least we have a base from which we can search for our long term rental.
