Today’s drive was a drive of two halves. Malda to Dalkhola and Dalkhola to Siliguri.
Malda to Dalkhola was excruciatingly slow. NH34 – for a drive in an Autorickshaw – has to be the worst highway around. A National Highway at that. Dalkhola to Siliguri was easy pickings. Smooth sailing. We had debated pressing on since it was only 4pm when we pulled into Siliguri. But then CoCo needed some attention and TLC (Tender Loving Care) so we stuck to our plan and rested up for the night in Siliguri.

Now final stage with drive into Guwahati and finally into Shillong.
