Hotel Namgyal cost us Rs. 1300 plus tax. Was not a great place to be- with dark dingy rooms, but seemed fairly clean. It was very well located though- 2 min walk from both the permit office as well as the 2 best restaurants in town- Kizom café and Zen restaurant. You could check other options in Phuntsholing- we are not aware of what other options are available. Our taxi driver (based in Phuntsholing) whom we had called earlier had booked the hotel for us.

We could avoid rickshaws and taxis. The bus took just 15 rs per head to Jaygaon and took about half an ...
I left Thimphu on Friday morning to go to Phuntsholing on the border with India. It was a field trip to gather more information on import processes. But it was also a chance for me to see the country - and I am sharing with you.
Leaving Thimphu about 10:30 - the driver, an inspector, myself and the driver's family, we heading south. Although only about 150 km, I was told the drive would be about 6 hours because of ...
... held water. It does seem unlikely that people would drill wells in the mountains and with the dry season, I can see why people would be concerned about saving water. I still wonder where the water comes from - rivers or springs higher in the mountains.
So around 12:30 or 1 pm, we stopped for lunch. I had asked Kunjang about the cake and we agreed that lunch time would be good time for the cake. We all had our lunches - I ordered ...
... photos out of the windows with cars buses and lorries passing each other on what was not much more than a single track road I noticed Lesley looking a little pale but she said she would be ok if she didn't talk. After a while we reached a police check point and whilst we were waiting to be cleared I noticed the occasional person clamber off the buses and throw up, mind you when you see them come round the corners tilting right over you can see the expressions on the passengers ...
