1 December 2007 - Dehra Dun to Dharamsala

Very early morning drive to Dharamsala. We started our journey around 8.45am after all the farewells and photo taking sessions. Khenpo Samdup had breakfast with us and he gave us each a picture of Achi Drolma for our safe journey. Chen Cong Si saw us off and I kind of felt sad when the bus moved off.

Had lunch mid way where we bumped into a group of Malaysians (mostly Indians). They were on their way back from Shimla where according to them, was snowing. Arrived Dharamsala at about 3am on 2 December. The driver apparently lost his way and instead took a road that bumped us right through some tunnels and stone filled roads. I must say it was one of the MOST perilous journey of my life.

Checking into Pema Thang was effortless. Maybe because the person in charge that night was just as sleepy as we were. Good Night folks!!!!!!
