We started our day by visiting the Happy Valley Tea Estate (which only exports their tea to Harrods of London, Japan, and Germany),we then visited the zoological center and saw a snow leopard. Later, we hung out with the owners of the “Hot Stimulating Cafe,” Lily and Rambubhai (aka Rambo). We had some nimbu nu serbert (sweet lime water) and masala chai. At 5 or 6pm we went to have some drinks with Rambo at a local underground speakeasy with a view of the North Himalayas. We met more cool local people and sampled local beers and some amazing gin from Sikim called Big Ben. On our way to grab dinner we passed a pony house where Jyoti tried to pet a horse and got bitten!
This morning when we woke up we decided that it be best for us to visit the doctor and have the minor wound checked out with rabies being our main concern. We have an appointment in 30 minutes. All should be fine!
As for the horse, I’m gonna go give it a piece of my mind after Jyoti gets checked out. I’ll snap a picture of the horse and poor lil Jyoti’s wound and post it on here later.
Hope Jyoti is OK. Horsing around on holiday is not smart. Even when you have Rambo for company.
Hah! I meant to upload the pics of the horse and Jyoti’s wound but the internet pooped out from all the rain and then we came to Gangtok, Sikkim last night where we don’t have WIFI…BOOO! We are using the office PC just so we can check out our blog!
LOL @ Rajesh. quality.
and lol @ the horse bite too.. i can just imagine it and it is hilarious (at least in my head).. that is, as long as she’s fine.
Gosh wild animals, carry a big stick … please carry a frist aid kit while on travel too …
We’ve got a couple of big umbrellas and Tushar is pretty scary looking so I think we’re equipped. Oh yeah… I get to take my second Anti-Rabies shot tomorrow which Tushar has the pleasure of administering. There are 5 shots in total! Grrrrrrrrr…
Goodness…so sorry! But I am very glad you’re okay, and I’m sure Tushar will be very gentle with the shots. 🙂
You’re adventure is so interesting to read. Things tend balance out…I believe. So being bitten by a horse is the negative – what would be the “un-bitten-by-a-horse”? I’m sure there are plenty, and will be plenty more!
Thanks Joe! Sadly the shot wasn’t gentle. I think it hit my fat instead of muscle and I had a lump there for the day while it trickled into my system. A small price to pay for adventure tho – and part of the collateral damage. Unbitten by a horse….? Hmmm – let me stew on that. We went to an Indian water park yesterday and while I did not enjoy it much at all – especially after Orlando, looking back I am glad I was able to see how different that experience is here. Haha…..I’m sure you’ll read more about that eventually 🙂 Take it easy!!
