Ivy Bank is really nice. I was there the week they opened. You're right, it's perfectly placed.

A few months later and I'm headed back up there. Staying at Rokeby this time. Got a nice little single room by the name, "fern" for myself. Seen pictures of the room and it seems glorious.

Any IM'ers at LLS right now? If yes, fancy catching up? I'm there from Dec 4th-Dec10th. I know LLS shuts on 10th so I envisage quite a few having some free time.

I plan to do quite a few things that I didn't have last time. Like walk down from Sisters Bazaar all the way to Woodstock. And go visit George Everest too. Time permitting, I also want to go to the corn village. PM me if anyone is around.

Oh great. Sainji. Another village renamed that did not need to be renamed, by people who know too much English.
Don't know how many times in the last one and half decades I've seen corn drying on rooftops in rural Uttarakhand. Except it used to be called maize then .

It's snowing at the top of Mussoorie. 1.5 inches on the ground.
