I took a trip to an old monastery/museum on a hill facing a mountain. It’s the same moon landscape I saw when I first arrived here on Sept. 27. I had my second experience with a Ladakhi outhouse only this one was beyond words or at least the stench was coming out of the hole in the ground. But when you have to go you have to go…. There were some sweet Ladakhi children nearby too.
In the late morning / early afternoon I found my way to a one-lane old, hanging bridge covered in old Tibetan flags on both sides. The bridge was above the bluest-green water I have ever seen. The light breeze made the intense sun a bit more bearable.
Later in the day back near the hotel, I discovered a maze of walkways behind and between houses that went into a small forest. There I was greeted by some sweet wild puppies and a VERY pregnant cow. Unfortunately you shouldn’t touch or handle any wild animals here due to a high chance of rabies.
