MG Road

MG Road, Gangtok, Sikkim

I found it the most beautiful and relaxing marketplace in India. The evenings there were simply superb. Slight drizzle made temp cool. The crowd was bustling yet some sort of calmness prevailed in the bazaar even during the busiest hour. The exciting moment came when my iPhone caught two free wifi signals as I was sitting on a bench at the one end of the MG Road. The next day, the ninth day of Dashain festival, I went around the town… from the hilltop palace and monastery compound to the flower garden. Lonely but informative exploration.
