... a four-lane road until we reach the border between Punjab and Himachal Pradesh, where we stop to pay a toll. The climb immediately becomes more dramatic, the road more winding, and the incessant passing (and honking) around blind curves more white-knuckle inducing! Before long we stop at a hilltop restaurant with a gorgeous view for a final "Continental" menu before we head into the hinterlands where menu options will be limited to Indian cuisine. ...

... a few minutes and there was a bad smell that came with it. All of a sudden Jamie held up the ipad and realised the room was filling up with smoke! The smell was of burning plastic. We grabbed as many things as we could (I know, I know, we should have just left everything and got out) and got out of the room.
