Kaza, Himachal Pradesh, India, 25 January 2017, 1227 hours:
Phew! We have just returned to Sakya House home-stay, having cleared the snow from the road, pushed our car seven times in the 26 kilometres from Kaza to Lidang and back, and having pushed the Bolero belonging to the kind Lama who had set out alone.
This, so far, has easily been the best workout day of the trip so far, walking, digging and shovelling snow, pushing the car and generally dealing with the continuous snowfall and biting wind.
I feel completely energised and focused on staying active. I feel good.
