CM Reaches London
Day 4 (Apr 11th)
Left Malda golden park hotel @6am towards Bhutan
After raigung google aunty said to take right as the other road was 60kms and 1hr slower
Entrance of the road itself was so small and the road took through very narrow villages and due to heavy overnight rain it was very wet through.
In one place we almost hit a bolero bcas of his breaking. But road was really seanic
Good we did not drive in night as most of the place was flooded then came NH and we drove to Bhutan without touching Siliguri via jalpaigiri and road and drive is exlent
And finally reached Bhutan and good food and rest.
Day 3 (Apr 10th)
After all confusion about Bharat bund at 8am it was clear that all is well there is no problem in our way to Siliguri
So we started as usual the road to Kolkata from Bhuneswar was covered in 5 hrs and without entering Kolkata we took Grand trunk road towards Durgapur and that some 100 kms was straight as runway for 100 kms
And google aunty said to take right towards Bardman wow got into the busiest traffic which took half hr to cross city and there after next 130 kms till reaching national highway small road but now the whole road is done good. You have to pass through lot of villages and speed breakers
Then when we reached Faraka bridge there was huge traffic jam a police guy allowed us to take wrong side and cleared bridge also and when we reached Malda there was again jam and it looked like it will take whole night to clear, but the mad ness and having a Jeep 4×4 took under construction bypass which no one thought or dared to do ( can say true off roading) after 6 kms I was thinking I was smarter to take bypass it was dead end as bridge over river was under construction. Some how too u turn and got into the city through the small lanes and no entries was about to come out of city it started raining heavy and some how I passed the eye of the jam and next 3 kms I was like VIP to come out
Then saw some good hotel and thought it is not worth to cover rest of the journey and stopped for the day.
Day 2 (Apr 9th)
Started from Taj gateway vijayawada @6am the truck and bike movement on the highway was heavy till Vizag and later covered some good speeds
Just 100kms to Bhubaneswar we caught up
With heavy rains so decided to halt at Bhubaneswar in a friends place. She too is to HHI where our Bhubaneswar jeepers were waiting for us
And then news came that 10th is going to be Bharath bund so bit confused what to do.
