... hillside at a cracking good speed; taking all sorts of secret shortcuts. I only became a little conserned the first time I lost sight of my regular mounts. But some roads are just for us bears.

... more people get on huge bus. Completely invading the personal space of everyone on the bus. Children are crying, strangers hold children while mothers get situated on a seat given up by another stranger. All of this is happening around me and no one is getting upset, it is just accepted and a part of life here.

Day 14 - Travel to Darjeeling

... air-conditioned seats on the train felt like luxury. A 4 hour train journey (pretty uneventful) brought us to New Jalpaiguri and our awaiting drivers. What followed will remain with me forever. Our journey up to Darjeeling took place during a torrential thunderstorm, a 3 hour white-knuckle ride up a switchback road driven by Captain Crazy McCrazy from Crazytown; I suppose I ought to be grateful it was dark so at least we couldn't see the ...
