Pelling, Sikkim, India, 19 June 2018, 0930 hours:
Sunshine, bright sunshine! In Pelling! That’s a first in 6 days.
Of course, this also means it’s going to be a hot day, but we will deal with that later.
For now, local residents are putting out their washing to dry, children are walking to school without umbrellas and tourists are heading out earlier than usual.
What are the chances that it will be clear enough to see Kanchenjunga?
That’s probably asking for too much…
