Mountain road in the Himalayas, Darjeeling District, India
I dug out a load of travel images from various parts of India and some countries in Africa….I’ve been meaning to put them into my gallery section.
This is one of those images. I have always liked this photograph, it was taken in the mountains between Darjeeling and Kalimpong in India in the foothills of the Himalayas. It shows all the daily bits and pieces used by a family in the houses that form the tiny villages perched in the mountainside.
This was another cycling trip quite a few years ago now, and I would never have even stopped to take this had I been in a car. And if I did want to stop in a car…I would have disturbed the whole row of houses and buildings….On a bike, I am far less disruptive or noisy.
