Monkeying Around at the Beach

The last couple of days we’ve had wind and high surf.  It’s hard to swim but we have fun catching the waves.ImageTwo weeks before we go, I’m enjoying every minute we have.

ImageAgonda’s a great place to try so spot exotic birds. Without effort we can hear their beautiful songs. But actually seeing them is much more difficult.

Georges, a serious birdwatcher has been coming here from Brittany every winter for 18 years. He shares his photographs and knowledge with anyone who shows the slightest bit of interest.

ImageOnce a week we ride the crowded rickety bus to Chowdy, for the local market. Fresh vegetables and spices abound. 


Devanshu puts in a little more meditation in the early morning before leaving Agonda. There’s achance that our paths may cross again in Darjeeling in March.
