Darjeeling, India #2
Pictures of, Images, Picture
(June to September, 2011)
I usually have a little bread in my backpack for this
goose during my walks but none in my bike bags this time - as you can see,
she is asking me and trying to act cute on a rainy bike ride through
Gretchen at work.
Drumming and dancing.
Cycling the backroads around Darjeeling.
We took a break at a little roadside shrine.

Darjeeling is a nice walking town if you don't mind a few hills and stairs.

This picture was taken a couple weeks ago at the travel agency office where
they had a big map - always draws my attention. I still have Europe, The
Middle East, and Africa to go - Another 10 years+ on the road!
