We were now staying in Darjeeling for 4 nights, quite nice as there was a fair amount to do up here, even though it was only a small town.
It was mainly settled in 1850 when the British moved up there to grow tea and to use it as an escape from the Indian heat back in the days of the Raj, this means that there are a number of British style homes and buildings, unfortunately since the British left, there has been no upgrade of the ...
