Hair-raising Hairpin turns

But WOW, what views. We were stopped at a few points by road work (see previous post) as well as for a couple of “police registrations”, but the road is magnificent. And scary and dangerous. We have stopped for the night at the charming town of Keylong, where I tracked down the only internet in town. It is dial-up of course, so there will be no wondrous photo doucumentation until Leh at the earliest. Tomorrow we will stop for the night at Pang, which I understand is nothing more than some tents by the side of the road. The next night will prob be not far from Leh at Tikse. Needless to say, I won’t be posting for a day or two (even from my phone, as Airtel network seems non existant up here in the clouds). Until then imagine the scenery…
