... It was one recommended in Jacqui's guidebook for tandoori so we made a reservation for 7:00 pm dinner. I liked the vegetable pakora and crunchy pork appetizers (I have taken to eating meat on my trips now) that I shared with Jacqui and the favorite drink of this tour - fresh lime soda. We can't seem to get plain lime juice outside Myanmar.

After lunch, some of us went in search of postcards and, when we had those, postcard stamps. The ...

  • After covering some 15km in 3 hours, all of it downhill, we arrived in the village of Gorkhey (2143m) on the banks of the Gorkhey River, stopped for a long two hour rest with drinks and momo's for lunch.

It really was a great way to spend a week and I will never forget ...

    ... and again took off with the original carriage, backed it onto another platform and those passengers transferred to the carriage. Turned out there was an issue with the connection and decided to replace the carriage. Needless to say we finally left late.
