Pattern, texture, colour: in which we fail to leave on time and buy a tea tray instead

how to make an entrance

We should have started the day with an early departure for Nagaland but one of our fellow travellers needed a visit to the doctor (successful: she soon recovered). Making the most of the extra time, we went for a walk through the village and along the main road, enjoying the inevitable photo opportunities.

Come rain or shine

When the heavens opened we took refuge in a cane furniture shop, making ourselves at home on the products. We also indulged in some light retail therapy, buying three tea trays betweens us. Ours was an excellent buy that we use most days.

When it rained again we took shelter in a small chai stall, where our guide enjoyed time chatting with the Nepali proprietor. There was no sign of the rain ever stopping so we called the bus to collect us.
