"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    @takafromtokyo If you go into Google and type something that you want to find out about, like for instance 'Darjeeling tea' you most probably will see this as the first item on the list of websites referring to Darjeeling tea. (In this case it was the first).

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darjeeling_tea

    If I want to check out a place then I tend to enter the name of the place and then 'wikitravel' as this narrows the search down to find the place but from a visitor's or tourist's perspective rather than just to find out about full details about the place.

    So for Darjeeling, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Darjeeling came up second (curiously after a site referring to a French website referring to Darjeeling underwear!)

    If I want information about visiting Darjeeling, then wikitravel is very useful. I often don't bother with a guide book as wiki travel is more up to date and covers most places.
