We spent a couple days of our 20-day tour of India recently at the Oberoi Vanyavilas, a tented safari camp in Sawai Madhopur, on the edge of Ranthambore National Park.

We mainly chose to visit Ranthambore because of the close proximity to the "Golden Triangle" of Agra, Delhi and Jaipur, and the great reputation of the Oberoi Vanyavilas

Kamal, manager and son of the owner, greeted us as soon as we cleared customs at the airport and filled us in on a little history on the drive to the riad.

We know all too little about birds!
However, while traveling in Costa Rica, we spent several days in Monteverde and took early morning treks into the 10,500 hectare Monteverde Cloud Forest Preserve.
