Siliguri to Gangtok with Prakash

We left Siliguri apprehensively with a private driver organised for us by our hotel, after our first plan to go with one through Preeti's family had failed. We turned out to be very lucky, as our driver, Prakash, was a lovely man who lives in Gangtok, and had come to Siliguri to visit his parents. He has …
