The first post is of the view from my balcony and kitchen. Since I moved into this apartment last March, I have been waking up to front row seats of a magnificent drama unfolding before me. The urban growth of the city and the surrounding hills forming the Gangtok valley make for a stunning backdrop to the theatrics that the clouds put on, on a daily basis. 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.
