The Wayfarer Diaries: Morning Blues

21-01-2017, 0800 hours, Kaza, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:

It’s cold today, with clouds covering up the sky over night. Keeping the toes warm in the cold is tough as it is the farthest away from the heart and also because the feet are in wet shoes most of the times. I keep moving my toes every now and then to generate heat.

Our driver and guide Mr. Sanjay Mehta has been to Spiti numerous times and knows the terrain and weather pretty well. In order to prevent the car from creating any problems in the morning because of the cold, he slept in the car last night and kept the engine running every now and then… What commitment and dedication!       Hats Off…
