On Sunday, I was in North East India where we went on a quick trip. Here are some pictures from the trip. I’ll talk about the trip in my next post. I am still enjoying the happiness hangover. We visited Gangtok
the capital of Sikkim
, which is at a height of 4715 feet on Sunday and Darjeeling
which is in West Bengal at a height of 6710 feet. We visited Tiger hill there at 8500 feet.
Now, let me take you there through a few pictures: do take note of the date and time.
At 7.12 am on Sunday – the view from our hotel window
At 9.28 am – we were at an indoor flower show
At 9.32 am
At 9.33 am
At 9.34 am
At 9.39 am
At 10.12 am … oh yes…there’s a point to the time-keeping! It rained all day and we were inside a raincoat all the time except inside the flower show! Visibility outside was almost nil. After the flower show, we went to a temple on a hill and here’s the view:
Opposite the temple, was the Sikkim zoo. Nature at its raw-est. A leech bit Vidur’s toe. Didn’t realize until almost three hours later – until we noticed the bloody foot – no really. I am not cussing.
At 11.00 am we met the red panda, a native of Sikkim, among other animals. Cute eh?
From the zoo, we were headed towards Lhasa falls, a waterfall. The water comes all the way from China.
I almost didn’t link up this Sunday and felt sad. Then when I visited the other blogs and saw the linky still open at Unknown Mami’s – I felt happy that I didn’t have to miss this Sunday. So what if it is already Thursday eh?
