Helping my sister out. She wants to put my dad's photos online. Only trouble is, they're almost all on slides. Which entails a helluva lot of work. Scanning, cropping, post processing. Bleh. Anyway, here's a couple. Posted by Picasa

Just realised the geological map is not very easy to read. Sikkim is the tiny turquoise dot between Bhutan and Nepal in the Himalayas.
Hard to believe Ricardo is there, in such a remote and exotic place. I almost forget what his voice sounds like. Posted by Picasa

Sikkim is a landlocked state of India situated amidst the Himalayas. It is the least populous state in India, and the second smallest in area after Goa. Sikkim was an independent state ruled by the Chogyal monarchy until 1975, when a referendum to make it India's twenty-second state succeeded.

The thumb-shaped state borders Nepal in the west, China to the north and east, and Bhutan in the south-east. The Indian state of West Bengal borders Sikkim to its south. Gangtok is the capital. With 50,000 inhabitants, Gangtok is the state's only significant town. Despite its tiny size, Sikkim is geographically diverse, owing to its location at the Himalayan foothills.

Terrain ranges from tropical in the south to tundra in the north. Kanchenjunga, the world's third highest peak, is located in Sikkim, straddling its northern border with Nepal. The state has twenty-eight mountain peaks, twenty-one glaciers, 227 high altitude lakes, including the Tsongmo Lake, Gurudongmar and Khecheopalri Lakes, five hot springs, and over 100 rivers and streams.

Eight mountain passes connect the state to Tibet, Bhutan and Nepal. Sikkim has become one of India's most visited states owing to its reputation for untouched scenic beauty and political stability. Posted by Picasa

The snow clouds were low over the lake this day, and the red branches of the bushes against the horizon looked so lovely. Posted by Picasa

I was shooting a "women's conference" last year and stayed to have a bite to eat. I can't help but think the pastry chef at the hotel was having a little fun with everyone. Posted by Picasa
