this place is unlike anywhere i have ever been before. . . it is nothing like the india i am used to, a little like nepal, and a good bit like england! i only wish i could share a photo. . . it will just have to wait friends.
the tea is all that it is cracked up to be. i'm all cracked up on caffeine everyday thanks to all the tea. i just cannot resist it with every meal. although i still have lots to learn about tea, i got a good introductory lesson about tea today from a nice darjeeling local today.
tomorrow i have an appointment on a train. i cannot wait. its a tad touristy, but it is the cutest thing ever. feeling like a kid again in darjeeling!
p.s. i miss my family. i miss snuggling with the sister shasties and the mother one, playing frisbee and other sports with the dudes, and my mother's amazing food . . . they are awesome and i cannot believe i have been away from them for this long.
