On the road from Manali to Leh

The second day of the journey from Manali to Leh took us through hour after hour of landscapes like this, where I felt almost as if I'd returned to Mongolia.

Now it seems so long ago.

I have flown over the Central Asian Plain but still find it difficult to believe how much of the Earth looks likes this. It takes hours to cross even by air.
England is a tiny patchwork cushion in comparison.

What a raw landscape, naked and powerful.

Kia ora Pete,
I can imagine how this would be feel and appear different depending on our own health....it was good to see you and look forward to dinner soon...

RR, that's been my experience also: so much of the world seems so sere and arid. Perhaps, though, that just reflects a possibly subconscious preference for avoiding the wetter parts of the planet.

Zhoen, that's true -- everything's on display here.

Kia ora Robb. When I saw this I was in good health; if I'd been travelling to seek help, this would surely have seemed daunting. Great to catch up with you and Tara the other day, too, and I'm looking forward to another session :^)
