MacLeodganj Trip: In the beginning

When the Bhanoti trip got scrapped, I was pretty much resigned to waiting for tyhe monsoons and getting back to the Sahyadris... until M's mail turnbed up. I hadn't known she was even here... and things start moving. Most people can't make it, unfortunately - leaves is always the biggest issue - but we got 4.
For a long time we were wondering where to go, whether to do Valley of Flowers, or one of the more popular glaciers, etc... and finally settled on Macleodganj, the Tibetan government-in-exile... they call it 'Little Lhasa'. And where we go from there was open-ended.
The preparations went on intermittently for nearly 3 weeks - tickets, flights, bookings, itineraries, leaves... and suddenly it's Wednesday and time to go.
