    ... to do here an' all. We didn't make it to Tiger Hill for sunrise on account of the near-permanent cloud cover, but we did make it up Observatory Hill where Buddhists and Hindus worship side by side. It's all prayer flags and prayer wheels, then there's Shiva linghams and statues of Ganesh nestled amongst them. There's a zoo too.

    ... duties. The situation is in the hands of the mafia and government will struggle to take control of this lucrative business. We made our way up a very windy and bumpy road making sleep impossible and causing a few queazy stomachs.

    ... to NJP station, so it's a shame it got wiped out by a landslide. Hopefully the plans to restore it in the next few years will come through- this would be such an ideal way to travel compared to driving!
