India



Darjeeling : INDIA.

  What a great card  Thank you so much Poonam for this card..  so many memories here..  I also traveled up here th Darjeeling to ride this famous train  "The Toy Train " This "Blue Train" of The Himalayan Railway " is quite famous and built for the British "Raj " to  access the mountains and avoid the heat of  the stifiling summer heat  in the lowlands. Organising a ticket was not an easy  process but eventually I got my ticked and joined this unique train...This is a most enjoyable train journey through the  streets of the various towns while ending up at the highest train station Ghum"
Thank you so much Poonam for this great card .. I love it..I could not find such a card when I was there /

 Darjeeling . : INDIA.

 What a lovely scene this is ..  A view of Katchenjunga from the high city of Darjeeling in Northern India..  This brings back memories  for me on my trip there to ride the "Blue ( TOY ) Train"..  extremely high altitude where I had some difficultycliming the many hills that are the sreets there..  My view of The Himalayas was not quite this good as so many days there was  a cloud cover and quite cold.. I trvaled to Darjeeling for the fresh mountain air trying to avoid the highly olluted air at sea level in the cities...Thank you so much Poonam for this lovely card from your trip there..
