Most of the trip was thru Ladakh which is closer to being Tibetan or Mongolian than Indian. The Buddhist influence is everwhere from Monasterys that barely clig to side of mountains to rows of prey flags sending on the wind messages of hope to the world.
The last leg of the ride saw us from Srinagar in Kashmir to Dharamsala where Tracy is currently studying. We thought one day would be sufficient to cover the terrain, but due to the monsoon there where diversion thru flooded areas and we would get 50 km down a road only to be turned back because of landslides..
We rode for 23 hours over the two days which the boys thought wasnt bad going but me i was totally spent.....Next big trip is going to be different.........2 wheels good 4 wheels bad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
