Or so you would think, all the way from Punjab to the eastern coast of India. Last month in geography class, we learned about the Himalayas in the north of India. The melting snow, beautifully serpentine roads, towering mountains and freshness in the air that lasts all day is the best way to sum up Himachal Pradesh. As the winding road on the side of Dalhousie bordering Punjab stops twisting on itself, Pathankot is well in sight. You meet Asian Highway 1 that would take you to Lahore on your right in an ideal world. Instead we turn left and proceed towards Delhi as we prepare to spend the next five days with the Tucson exploring India’s plains.
