Darjeeling - welcome to the clouds

Darjeeling - Bienvenida a las nubes

rain 22 °C

We headed to north India to see the mountains of Himalaya but we forgot to check when the monsoon will hit the area...
So we were living in the clouds for four days. Some times it was like the windows were painted with white color.
Still we were able to see quite a lot of things and even do hiking into Nepal for a day.

-----------------

Nos dirigimos al norte de la India para ver las montañas del Himalaya, pero nos olvidamos de verificación cuando la lluvia llegará a la zona ...
Así que estábamos viviendo en las nubes durante cuatro días. Algunas veces era como las ventanas estaban pintadas de color blanco.
Aún así hemos podido ver mucho de las cosas y siquiera ir de excursión a Nepal por un día.

Hola mi amorcito, te aprobecho de agradecer el lindo gesto de mandarme una postal desde tán lejos "Dubai", se agradece, muchas gracias y me siento orgullosa de ti por tener la oportunidad de conocer tantos lugares bellos y tán distintos de nuestra cultura..
Sabes que algunas de estás fotos que acabo de ver se parece en muchos aspectos a tú querido Valparaíso, jajaaja
Por la pobreza y las constucciones livianas que tienen, por favor no lo tomes a mal, yo lo veo así..
Te mando un grán abrazo y espero que estén muy bien, los quiero y muchos besitos, cuidense mucho..
