The one 'where the taxi driver goes wtf'

9th October 2009. A day that started lazily if a 8.00 am start qualifies for that. We had decided to have brekkie at Cafe Live and Loud and then catch up on some last minute shopping at M G Road.

Soulmate poster at Cafe Live and Loud..I missed them again :(

The sun was showing and the sky was blue. We walked arounf so much that I ended up removing my jacket. The warm sun felt good on my nakes arms. Such a pity we didn't experience this kind of weather when we were in North Sikkim.

M G Road

Did some last minute shopping and then found ourselves at Bakers Cafe on M G Marg for lunch. This place is a find. It had a fab view of the mountains and serves continental food. I had a yummy kapi and pasta after 2 weeks. The luxuries of civilisation :)

T's drink :D

We headed back towards the hotel, paid our bills and had a taxi waiting for us. The guy's cab was refusing to go up the incline at Mintokling. He says, 'The first time it happens. What the fuck man!' Hhahahahahahahahahha. It was a similar tone to T's - you gotta hear it to believe it...

Got the taxi to Siliguri for 130 bucks a seat. We bought 3 seats as always and had a super long journey to Siliguri. Am glad we started when we did - at 2.00 pm and got to Siliguri at 6.30 pm. Got another shared auto to NJP station. The train was waiting for us. An uneventful journey to Sealdah. No 'ta-ta-time -pa-pa-pass' kind of guys on the train this time.
