We reached Hirapur, a typical village of Nepal around five in the afternoon. Prakash, our driver and I discussed sitting by warmth of the fire at length, the reason why or why not would the tourists come to Hirapur if homestay was offered. I didn't want to concede to him even though he had more experience in tourism sector.

Time heals everything as nature adjusts. Nature takes its own course of action. Like an expert in the conference said 'nature doesn't need human beings. Human beings need nature.'

I must confess that the cruise didn't match our expectations. We had paid ¥680 (approximately $100) per person for this cruise to the Three Gorges Dam. Breakfast, lunch and dinner served, but after being disappointed by the room, we didn't expect muc
