Der Führer: Day 8 – The Ride To Darjeeling

Got up at the disgusting hour of 5am in order to be moved down the train from the rather cramped environment of 3AC to the luxurious expanses of 2AC. A few hours later we left Assam and the internet flickered back into life in time to make the previous two posts and notify next of kin of our existence. Pulled into New Jalpaiguri at noon. Which was earlier than someone who had been staring at the itinerary for 12 months should perhaps have expected.
We then went via the hotel Cinderella in Siliguri for a swifty with Dave Watson of the DHRS gang, before the ride up the hill. Captain Shakti found himself in the back of the suspension-less 4×4 we could only find and was very low on batteries when we finally reached the heavenly Shanri-La Regency. More gushing praise for those lovely people later (note, get your wheels sorted at NJP station even if you are stopping off in Siliguri, and never ask a hotel to sort it for you, Cindy quoted 3,800!!!, asking price is 1,500).
You’ll be getting a blog blitz later on, stay tooned.

Gentlemen’s Club, By our mate Dave Watson
