Many of the places you have visited remain on my bucket if only we would get back our travel freedom...till then PN remains such an escape. The silvery-cheeked hornbill of your was so awesome..I googled it. learnt about a new species and without stirring from the desk. Thank you, Mel for the hornbill and all the lovely photos you have shared..

Thanks Sukanya. I am very lucky to have been taken to some great places. Now that I am retired, I am enjoying posting from past trips. (Have to admit to 'itchy feet' though)

I love the birds you post...and so envy (in a good way) the places you have visited. Thank you, Mel.
