... up to the hills of Darjeeling. As we had an even longer than usual journey we were in no mood for negotiating and the usual India hassle, but we were blissfully left alone here, strange but so refreshing! We all agreed that Darjeeling was going to be a nice place.

    ... first prize 20000 rupees which they will deliver. After driving down the horrendous road with our heads between our knees we headed for the Himalayan Zoological Park. Here we saw and heard the snow leopard, the red panda, Bengal tiger and many more. After a slow drive through the gridlock of traffic in town we arrived back in Heaven at 5:15pm After a long day we debriefed with a strong drink or two before dinner.

    ... they don't seem to be fazed by our presence which is refreshing. The physical appearance of the people in these towns have changed from your typical looking Indian to people who are a mixture of Indian and tibetan or Indian and Nepalise. This wasn't what I expected but is interesting and nice to see a different India to what we have experienced so far.
