After a good nights sleep in the enormous bed, I wake at 5am to the sound of thunder. The heavily falling rain, scuppered the early dawn filming plans. A welcomed cup of tea arrives, it's warm amber glow contrasted with the cool cloud filled skies.
The rain finally stops and we set off around 7am, film crew, equipment, the star of the Nestle show - Mr Jangpana Tea himself, Shantanu and me! We head off in a convoy, down the narrowest most precarious mountain road, barely wide enough for one vehicle. Our driver skilfully weaved his way down, negotiating countless hair pin bends, some so tight, it was impossible to turn in one go so a special wheel spinning reversing technique was required. The views across the tea filled valley to the Jungpana factory were spectacular.
After a beauTEAful day. I sip another cup of delicious Darjeeling all alone in my huge bedroom, a room almost the size of my house! Feeling a little like Alice in Wonderland, wondering what adventures tomorrow will bring.
