Namaste and Many Greetings from Sikkim!
We just arrived Sikkim safely after couple of days in Kolkata. All the kids, along with Gina and Robbie, are doing well, and I am sure all of them enjoying and learning good experience from our region. Tomorrow we are heading towards North Sikkim where they gonna stay with local family for couple of nights before proceeding for adventure trek in west Sikkim.

From Gina Wither, Group Leader
Today was a better day than anticipated. We went to the market, saw a cool Hindi movie "Poorna" about youngest girl to climb Everest, and visited a science museum. Everyone is doing well. Today we travel to Sikkim via plane and bus ride. Depending on wifi there, our next checkin might be via the delorme.
