The next two days were all about bus travel. Dalhousie to Dharamsala, Mcleodganj to Palampur, Palampur to Kangra n all the way back. 30min rides to unending 6 hour rides in buses of all types -- the comfy n clean kinds, the rickety n roaring kinds, and the hardly moving kinds -- till I was ready to scream "I hate buses!!!"
But have to admit, bus travel does have a charm of its own, especially if its along a mountainous terrain. It rambles down at its own pace with its huge size on not-so-wide roads. And every time there is oncoming traffic on such steep n narrow roads, I catch my breath n worry that we will get stuck real bad, and each n every time I'm proved wrong by these incredibly expert drivers!
