THEME DAY JUNE 2022---THE ROAD TO LEH FROM SRINAGAR


 Obviously, this is not Serbia or even close.  In 2016 I was in Kashmir, India, and went by jeep from there to Leh, the capital of the autonomous region of Ladakh.  The pass to get there only opens on May 1st, when most of the snow is gone. You can see it was not, and the plowed snow to each reached over the height of the buses that could pass. I took this photo when we had to stop to let oncoming traffic through.

I was constantly invoking the gods not to have a 'wall' fall on me, and since you're reading this, you can see that none did.

 Edit: pastis is a licorice-flavored alcoholic drinksimilar to Greek ouzo. My favorite drink as it is for many people in this area. No more ...
