    ... the fact I am sick of having cardamom indigestion... I look forward to South East Asia. Luke says the food is OK (with an upward inflection). It is cheap though, usually about 1.20 for a paneer butter masala and rice.
    Finally on the last day we shipped our sleeping bags and stuff, having been told that we no longer needed them, and went to the Himalayan Zoo. The taxi dropped Luke, Jason, Jordan and I at the front gate, we paid our 50p and got told the ...

    ... on our short but complicated journey. Particular thanks go to the wonderfully distinguished chap, Padmar; a teacher and ex-Gurkha who, if my maths is correct professed to be 60 but looked about 40 and had no trouble with the steep undulations of Darjeeling town centre. Thankfully he showed us virtually to the door of the hotel as it really does have some very steep paths and hidden back alleys does Darjeeling. Not a good place top wander aimlessly for half ...

After the thali we had a bit of time so went to another posh Darjeeling tea shop. They had all kinds ...

    Teaching at the local school

    I had a really lovely time teaching at the local school. First watching this absolutely adorable kindergarten children singing to us in this little school. Following that I taught an older group who were like sponges and enjoyed learning. They all spoke English, Nepalese, Sikkim and Hindi.. a few Bengali. Their drive to learn was wonderful. We take education for granted and here they ...
