Monster Gecko

Well, I liked our lizard, but the one above was hard not to like better. All eight or so inches or him came with the 350 rs. ($8) a night place I stayed at this weekend. When I checked out the room at first, I thought he was some kind of weird ornament, he was staying so still. It was only when I came back that I realized I had my own gecko for the night.

As you'd expect from the hotel's rate, it was not fancy -- a bring your own soap and toilet paper kind of place -- but the bug-eating lizard came free, and it evidently did it's job well. And a free lizard friend is not something that the Taj or Oberoi would think to include.
