All too soon it was time to leave the park and head back to Jupuri for lunch. I had been joking with the staff in the dining room about how much I liked their spicy chillies which I had been eating raw with some of our meals. A little audience gathered behind me and I was presented with a saucer on which there were a couple of small round chillies. Smelling a rat, I was told that if I liked spicy chillies then I should try one of these. It turned out they were the 'spiciest chillies in Assam' and I was glad to only have only tried a small piece!
We had no luck at all back in the tea plantation with the pitta but had a nice blue-eared barbet as compensation.
Our final meal was tinged with sadness as we realised that the trip was drawing to a close. A couple of beers were drank, the final checklist completed and it was back to the cabins to pack and an early night.
