We arrived in Katmandu after a 7 hour jeep and bus from the base of the himalayas. One can describe the drive as detaching one’s organs from body. It has to be the most rough terrain on the planet one can subject a Toyota Land-cruiser too.
It is absolutely amazing that any machine can be designed to withstand even a few hours on such a path let alone a day. The team is dusty, dirty, stinky, rashy, snotty, scaly, and hairy. Currently looking for a bar of soap and scissors.
