    ... 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.

    Before I knew it, we'd slipped into Nepal. The change in culture was plain as the fur on my face: here, nestled in the hills, was a full on Tibetan temple, complete with prayer wheels and multicoloured flags briskly flapping in the wind. I really must get myself a more colourful ...

    ... stealing two games without muttering Uno, and Samyog still reluctant to play his 4s. We had decided to save our purchase for Samyog until the following morning, so before his departure to school, presented him with the English book entitled 'The Geography of the World' that we'd purchased in Darjeeling.
