... Passed a vegetable market with a hundred delivery trucks lining the narrow road for a km each side. Lovely scenery with the steep sided hills dotted with houses and some narrow cultivated terraces. Approaching Shimla we had a monsoon downpour so had to stop to close the vents on my jacket and put on my over trousers. Our hotel is a tale of faded glory. So far the beds have got a bit more rustic each night. Not sure how this ends up! Shimla was once the summer capital in ...
... Another interesting encounter was in Mall Street, where a young teenage Indian boy ran up to us with a huge smile and shook our hands, almost curtsying as he did this, and ran off. 2mins after this, the same boy approached us from behind and hugged us.

However shortly before the gate there was a gap in the barrier on the right, which marked the start of a little-used path. It led east, the ...
... driver is as good as the others which I am sure saves us a few hours as we overtake and dive into any tiny gap, climb the banks to squeeze in after our overtaking when nothing is coming the other way. So many people however end up reversing hundreds of metres to let the traffic through, whose side of the road they are actually on. We make it back to town a lot later than planned, find our way back to our hotel somehow, (maps seem to be hard to come by down to individual ...
