After 13 hours of bumpy bus ride, we arrived in McLeod Ganj at 7.30 am. The volunteer coordinator from LHA Charitable Trust, Rabsel, picked us up from the bus stand and walked us to a guesthouse called Pawan House. Pawan House is managed by a Kashmir man, he told me that I’m the first Indonesian to stay there, I feel honored! Rabsel then let us settle down and said he’d meet us the next day in the morning.
After checking in the guesthouse and unpacking our stuffs in the room (we each have our own room!), Elena and I went wandering around McLeod Ganj. First, we had our late breakfast at Carpe Diem. We then spent our day exploring the main street, Main Temple (Kalachakra Temple), Tibet Museum, and Office of Dalai Lama; and followed by lunch at One Two Cafe. At night, we had massage at Ladies’ Venture Hotel for 450 Rs. (more…)
