Heavenly Himalyas #2: Momos, Fiddleheads & Ramen

A travel blog entry by npacadia

This is Part 2 of 3 blog posts about our recent travel to the northern part of India.

A popular food on our journey north, which we enjoyed immensely, was momos. A momo is a type of dumpling native to Nepal and also enjoyed by communities in Tibet, Bhutan and Northeast India, (Sikkim and Darjeeling, where we were.) They are a type of steamed bun, (similar to dim sum) and the ones ...

Luggage Update

A travel blog entry by leve-cowles

Louise purchased a rug in Darjeeling – so now I'm the only GOG left without one. Katherine got a bunch of kameez tops… and I bought way too many pashminas, shawls, and scarves… and knives... and a wood fueled backpacking stove. Jewelry was Louise’s downfall.

Then we saw the ...

Its time to move on to new horizons or actually new mist. We hire a driver for the journey to Darjeeling and start the descent and then the climb. If one thought the previous roads were bad we discover they can be worse. We rarely get out of first gear for 3 hours and I spend most of the drive not looking down past the clouds. As soon as we enter Ghorkaland (tho really West Bengal) the tea appears on the steep slopes. It's a picture we have all seen, the tea trees with ...
