Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
those pix are stunning, a dire poco...

i remember meeting some himalayan people when i was in india, on a pilgrimage up a steep, winding, sharp and pointy trail. they were from nepal, and my mind was totally blown by the strength, grace, humility, and ear-to-ear smiles on their faces.

your pix of those packs brought the memory back brilliantly.

these guys were barefoot, and their packs not much shorter than they were!

beautiful comment above about the dignity of children, far easterner.

so glad you shared this wonderful diary, truly sublime landscape and pix that reflect both your sensibilities and the epic nature of your journey.

just incredible...
