Spent all day in Darjeeling, 4 hours of
it getting my Sikkim Permit. Things are never straightforward in
India, first of all you go to the Magistrate's Office to get a form,
this then has to be filled in and taken to the Foreigner Registration
Office (on the other side of town!) to be stamped and signed, then
you take the form back to the Magistrate's Office where they will
issue your permit!!!
