Indian Paradise?

Wow! What a change of scenery. After a long car journey and some dodgy Indian food in a roadside restaurant (my stomach is still feeling blurry 24 hours later) we arrived at a mountainside paradise. And it is absolutely stunning. The charity we are filming is called IPAN (Indian Project for Animals and Nature) and it couldn’t be any more different from the Karuna Society. The dogs look healthy, the donkeys are the cutest things I’ve ever seen and the whole place has a wonderful feel to it.

But in this paradise there are huge problems: today we removed 14kgs of plastic from the stomach of a cow. And this isn’t an isolated case. Many of the livestock around the area feed on the rubbish dumped by the locals. It is a sad and depressing fact and one that I hope we will highlight to the wider public.

In other news: Marc called a cow a dog, Adam got obsessed with the idea that he had fleas, and I heard Luke singing in his hotel room (which is adjacent to mine) last night. I think he’s practicing for the release of his first album: Pet Sounds. Boom. Boom.
