Photos from Kalimpong, 2007

I have a wonderful selection of photographs from my visit to Kalimpong and Darjeeilng in 2007 that I am eager to share!

1) Views of the hills; 2) the pigeons my family raised (my first week as a student was marked by the cooing of pigeons in the rafters of my room above the ceiling; 3) the tea kettle boiling on our gas stove; 4) houses nestled up the hill.

Important People:

1) Kailash daaju (host brother) and Monika bhauju (his wife); 2) Kabita did (my host sister); 3) Thuli aamaa (our neighbor up the hill); 4) Monika bhauju and her mum

Above are flowers from Kailash Daaju’s garden.  Many houses in Kalimpong have beautiful flower gardens, and when I asked people about them, people explained that it’s a way to beautify and care for their homes.
