Onwards to INDIA!

We got up at sparrows fart this morning so we could get to the border before it got crowded.   It was a nice drive through the countryside and while I am excited to go to India (the main destination for this trip) I felt a little sad to be leaving Nepal.

The border between Nepal and India is rather amusing; it’s just like an ordinary street with a bit gateway… one side for Nepal, the other for India.   There are a couple of immigration offices (basically little shacks on the side of the road) and the Indians/Nepalese can walk freely between the two countries.    It’s a lot looser than any of the other border crossings I’ve done!

On arrival to India I was expecting to see a huge difference… more crowds, rubbish and pollution… but to be honest, I didn’t see much of a change at all.   Perhaps there was noticeably more people… but other than that seems pretty similar to the parts of Nepal I visited.
