The Paro-Delhi flight is a delight on an excellent day and this was a type of days when it was pure magic. Out of my airplane window, the peaks of the Himalaya have been in clear view. I used to be so excited, taking photograph after photograph of the mountains, regardless that I’ve seen them innumerable occasions. Only a few others on the flight confirmed a lot curiosity, besides when Everest was talked about, but this was most likely most passengers’ first view of those peaks. Solely a pair Indian children confirmed curiosity, “Papa, snow mountains!” “Sure, beta, they’re simply mountains, let me sleep.”
