This is the splendid view of the Gangtok valley as seen from my balcony and kitchen. Since moving into this apartment last March, I have been waking up to front row seats of this magnificent drama. The urban growth of Gangtok and the surrounding hills forming the valley make for a stunning backdrop to the daily theatrics that the clouds put on. There is a different view every single day and I can never get tired of it. It offers a refreshing change of pace while you are running around trying to start the day.
