After an interesting stay in Manipur I got back to Meghalaya now where I went on a trip to Cherrapunjee, the wettest place on earth today. Obviously it also rained today otherwise it would be like a joke and so we were not able to enjoy the view on the waterfalls... Therefore we decided to jump into a tourist resort in mid of the jungle for two nights from where we did a trek to one of the unique living roots bridges over here. These bridges are amazing and probably unique in the world. Tomorrow we gonna do a one day trek to a double decker living roots bridge. The place is so beautiful and untouched that even decided to cancel my flight to Darjeeling that was already booked for tomorrow. Depending on the schedule for the movie I am gonna make I will either go to Delhi directly or stay a few days in Darjeeling or Sikkim as well. Nothing can be said for sure here.
Manipur by the way is a totally unsafe place as I have realized. Even I had a permit there were many restrictions. Nevertheless I was with a kind family who member of the local government and had the possibilities to assure a relatively safe stay for me. Anyway it is a strange feeling seeing the vehicles carrying machine guns driving around and stuff...
