Batal is a lovely place on the way from Manali to Kaza. I remember it all the more clearly because it was our stop for lunch and I was clearly hungry by the time we had reached Batal. There is just one temporary shop for food and next to it was this small stall selling souvenirs. I still remember reading Arun’s account and his stay at the Dhaba in Batal.
Even I remember the people running the Dhaba. I had asked them if we could stay there on our way back as I wanted to see Chandratal. They said yes, we would be welcome. My plans of visiting Chandratal did not materialize as my nephew refused to give me company and so did Sesha! So, Chandratal has to happen some other time.

Lakshmi, I somehow make do with photographs rather than souvenirs! I will have patience for CLAY and you. Thanks for letting me know.
I saw your pictures of Oxford, UK. I am from Brazil, but I’ve lived in Oxford in 2005/2006. They are amazing! The most beautiful pictures of Oxford I have ever seen. Awsome!
Letticia, thanks a lot for your kind words about my pictures. I have visited Oxford twice and really liked the city. Once again, thanks a lot for the encouragement.
