Lazy as a Heiffer in Leh

When Santanu told me not to go anywhere for my first 2 or 3 days here, he was right – we’re at 11,000 ft. elevation. I flew in, had breakfast, and walked down the road and up a small hill to watch the Dalai Lama speak at a school. The children sang a song about world peace. I was in awe at my good luck. I was given a prayer scarf, told how to hold it and when to fold my hands.

That little walk cost me a trip to the clinic for Acute Mountain Sickness…more later…
