Hi, I'll be going to Dharamsala/Mc Leod Ganj for about a month in August. I'd like to inquire with you kind people about two things: 1) volunteer opportunities. I'm an English teacher and would love to do some volunteer teaching to buddhist nuns, monks or frmer political prisoners/exiles. I've tried to organize it online, but the communication's proved damn hard. I was told to just turn up and look for opportunities, but maybe those of you who've had these experiences could push me in the right direction? 2) I'll be looking for a good yoga centre, offering retreats or daily classes around there. Anyone's found a jewel that could be recommended? I'd really appreciate your help. Love and brown rice, magicwoman

I am coming out to Macleod Gange in April 2006 with my husband and two children aged 8 and 13. It is their first time in India. I was going to book at Chonor House but i know it is pricey. As there are four of us, money is a bit of an issue. Do you think it is best to pay more and make sure my family have the very best rooms or do you think there are cheaper hotels where they would still feel they had great rooms and service? Can you advice which ones? Advice much appreciated Many thanks Sarah

Hello, We are hoping to visit McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, Chamba, Kalpa, Sarahan, and the Sangla Valley (Sangla, Rakcham, Chitkul) in March 2005. What should we expect in terms of weather for that period of the year? Do you see any problems in going to these places? What other places inside Himachal Pradesh would you highly recommend in March and why? We enjoy day hikes, love beautiful mountain scenery, and appreciate meeting friendly people. We don't plan to go on trekking expeditions. Thanks for your help. Clodio
