Today I get up early to take photos of “Mud” and it’s citizens in the morning sun:
One of the Guesthouses up here even offer Internet via Satellite:
Breakfast takes long to get prepared. The people up here don’t seem to be in a hurry. But that’s ok, as we are waiting for the air temperature going up. This is the first time “BigBertha” has some issues to start. I guess it’s the altitude and low temperature.
The way back to the NH-22 is mostly gravel, but a pleasant ride:
Hey folks, are you having a good time??
Guy on his Enfield:
Followed by Raphael, Enfield too.
… and Einav on her Bajaj Pulsar 150 ccm:
But where is Nadav? Apparently he is falling behind – just as usual. But he makes it just in time for a group photo at the entrance gate of this valley:
We proceed to Kaza, a main hub in the Spiti valley, eat lunch in the German Bakery and check the internet.
I have to refill the tank in Kaza, as this is the last gas station for about 260km, next will be in Tandi. I get there during lunch break and have to wait for 20 min. They claim to be the highest gas station of the world:
This part of the Spiti valley is beautiful, but the landscape doesn’t change that much anymore. Crossing a bridge with the typical Tibetian flags:
Two highlights enroute. The road is cut into the rock:
.. and a small water crossing:
Einav on her Pulsar 150 ccm manage those obstacles very well:
We make it to Losar just before dawn. The last kilometers had been pretty cold.
My Israeli friends bought food in Kaza and decide to cook themselves tonight. It’s Friday night, which is a traditional feast for them. Nadav makes his prayer and blesses the food. We have pasta, egg- and thuna salad. Yummie!
I’m happy to be part of this evening and learn about Jewish traditions.
