The Wayfarer Diaries: Christmas Postcards from Shimla

December 25, 2230 hours; Shimla, Himachal Pradesh, India:

I returned home from Nankhari late last night, and after a busy Christmas morning, decided to see what’s happening across the city. St Michael’s Cathlolic Church near Western Command was my first stop, from where I went to Mall Road and on to Christ Church on the Ridge. It was a merry sight with shops and restaurants decked up in festive cheer, and the churches in full festive bloom. A few snapshots from the day.
