KAPOORS ON THE ROAD
At the last minute, our flight to Bhutan was changed nearer to noon, so we got a chance to relax in our luxurious rooms and dawdle over an awesome breakfast. There was something for every culture around the world.
The flight departed on time and before we knew it, the magnificent Himalayas came into view. It was a bright sunny day, our luck because it can often be foggy as winter approaches. The monsoon rains had ended in early October and the land was beginning to look drier again. As we passed over the Ganges, I could see that it too was beginning to recede from its high-water mark. I was seated on the right side of the plane, so it wasn’t easy to take photos as we travelled eastward. Fortunately, a kind passenger let me lean across to his window to take photos, in exchange for helping him to identify Mount Everest as it came into view. What a thrill it was to see the famous mountain in all its glory. There wasn’t a cloud in sight and it was clearly the highest peak for as far as the eye could see.
