01-02-2017, 1156 hours, Tabo, Spiti, Himachal Pradesh, India:
We have reached Tabo and two more female passengers have joined us from here. The drive after crossing Mane Dhank has been smooth with amazing views of the snow covered fields and mountains all around us. It is also noticeable that there is less snow here than what it is there from Kaza till Mane Dhank. We are 10 people in the Sumo including the driver now. The females who have just joined us are in the front seat; Ameen, Suresh and I are in the middle seat; and Abhishek and Sanjay are in the back with the other two females from Lingti. As we cannot stop here for too long to wait and check upon Mr. Mehta, our cab driver is now loading the luggage of the passengers from Tabo and we will leave as soon as possible with the rest of the convoy with whom we have caught up.
