t w o hours that changed a daily routine.
I remember arriving in India during the heatwave of summer – the ground almost felt like it was melting and moving into the desert certainly didnt make it any cooler.
It is without doubt that my first warm shower occurred only 70 odd days after arriving in India.
Darjeeling, having not seen sun for two months, snow capped mountains and daily rains, was the coldest and most beautiful place I visited on the subcontinent. . . and the two hours available for showering at Hotel Alignment was a sincere luxury.
