Hi Zambie,

In fact I have been in Darjeeling twice, first in 1985 on the way to Bhutan and in 2000 for a trip to Sikkim. It's a nice coincidence, last weekend a friend of mine who is preparing for a trip to Sikkim asked me some details about the region. I checked my notes and a lot of memories came back.

It's true that we tend to ignore our direct neighourhood. I must have driven a certain road near my hometown (West-Brabant, Netherlands) at least a couple of times every week for 15 years when a local newspaper pointed me to a nice hiking track just a few hundred meters away from the road. I wouldn't have thought of it without that article.
