Leh 15 Aug – 3 Sept.

Here I am doing a bit of geography. The dark river comes from Leh, the lighter one is the Indus and travels all the way to the ocean. I rafted down it with Jacob.

Ramadan finished on the first weekend we were in Leh

Wow what a place.

3500m high really takes its toll. Angela had to spend a good 4 days drinking tea and reading whilst Louise was up and about in the first day. I now know how it feels to be the old one struggling at the back, as the fit and flighty scamper away up the hills. One foot breath, next foot wobble, stop rest -repeat several thousand times to get up the huge hill that seemed like a good idea to book the guest house, because it had a good view.

The view is fantastic; oasis, desert then 6000m peaks capped in snow.

Angela keeps telling me I should book an expedition :- I didn’t think the life insurance was that high.
