Mussorie is the smallest place we have been till now, in India though small town dos not mean quiet town, luckily Mussorie has a restricted car access in the centre and it made strolling around much easier than it has before. The good thing about Mussorie was the temperature, finally the air was fresh, the sun warm and at night we could finally wear the sweater we've been dragging along for 2 weeks. It was sheer joy for both of us, but Davide especially as the mountains are his natural environment. In theory from Mussorie you should be able to see the snowy peaks of the Himalayas, in practice it was so hazy all the time that in 3 days we didn't manage to see any peaks.
We got the rain though, and the hail, in fast, sudden, large quantities, scary if you are in a old clunky ropeway but otherwise spectacular to look at.
Other than people watching and enjoying the fresh breeze we haven't done much in Mussorie, which actually made us feel on holiday for the first time.
Bizarre facts about Mussorie:
-the town is full of magic tricks shops
-there are a lot of improvised scrappy fun fair
-there are a lot of "Push Chairers", people that come with a push chair and will wheel your fat lazy kid around the town as you stroll ahead with your family
-there are incredibly strong tiny people that carry on their backs all sorts of stuff: luggages of lazytourist, water tanks, cupboards…full ones, etc etc
