It was indeed a memorable 7 days spending time with all 17 of you in a dream destination like spectacular Ladakh! Thanks for sharing this epic week with me. What a great mix of laughter, magnificent landscapes, yak rides, camel rides (can’t forget Neeta’s camel’s hump!!), the eerie ghost stories, the ‘FIGHT’ with the firangs in search of peace (wink wink), countless posing for photographs (total glee), shopping, shopping and more shopping, our endless bumpy drives (mobilized our fat deposits...so that was a plus!), Sindhu’s hilarious one-liners n expressions, and not to forget the exhilarating, adrenaline rush infused River rafting with Himal and Kali!!! Indeed...WOW....ooops...GOTG!!! :)
