EASTER EGG from Elf
Ok, my week has been pretty nice and normal! Just been teaching at Blue Diamond and Regal Academy! Say a kids finger basically sliced open because India has no concept of health and saftey (although the UK has gone a little OTT India could do with a few more rules and regulations!)
...left school on Thursday on a bus to Darjeeling, that decided that it was only going to Ghoom!...got to Darjeeling at about 7pm and met up with Katie and Jen for dinner at the Park (lovely and yummy!!) Friday woke up...had breakfast at the Mystick Mountain and then went to meet Elf =D
Met up with the boys and leisurely drinks (for about 5 hours) in the Mayfair hotel =) Very nice apart from the fact that Jen paid Rs 500 for a margarita (about 6pounds!!) then went to Joey's bar which was really cool.
Church
..sat on a sofa outside in a concrete crater with a fire for many hours !
Saturday was spent sleeping, reading and sitting in the sun and being asleep by about 8pm!!
Sunday has been awesome! Got up at 3am to go to Tiger hill with Elf, Jen and Katie - was incredible to see the sun rise and see the tips of the Himalayas =) we then walked down into Ghoom and had brekkers at a lovely little cafe with some German med students (David and Caroline) who we met at Tiger Hill - they'd also been volunteering but in a "hospital" in Kolkata =) and then it was off to Easter Sunday Mass for us! Was really interesting, cool songs and made me thing about blind faith because the priest talked about how we have to see to believe ad refuse to have faith in things we can't see - which i'm not totally against, but it made me wonder and ponder nonethe less!

Monday 5th April
Have finally made it to Sonams kitchen (after a month...) - had the best breakfast ever! Big slices of well toasted brown bread, yummy fried eggs and fried tomatoes - DELICIOUS oh and REAL GROUND COFFEE!!!! And all for only rs130 (which is just over 2 pounds!!) Saree shopping today =D yay sparkles here I come! And then heading back to Ghayabari when Kate gets in from her trip to Sikkim.

Anywho! Much love to all~
