There’s this strange feeling about clouds; sometimes we were right inside the cloud and some other times, even above the clouds! And, this not in an airplane but on normal ground at high altitudes. It feels so good and so different. We did touch, pass through and experience clouds more than few times.Ignorantly of course, we hoped the sky would be clear at night so that we can take a ‘long exposure’ shot of beautiful sky with stars. Where else, if not in The Himalayas, would we find such a pollution free climate? But then, on Day 2, when our wish was granted, our ignorance was gone. Without the clouds in the sky, the heat on the ground escaped so fast, that we were shivering inside the tent. Temperature was not very low but little breeze made it worse. Forget about the ‘long exposure’ composition, at 7.30 pm, we had a serious discussion in the tent about what to tell everyone as a reason to skip dinner! We thought, no stepping out whatsoever!
Damn, we had to step out for dinner that night anyway, struggling hard to hold the plate steady with shivering hands. Chewing was easy though – our jaws were chattering anyway! 😀 And on top of that, we washed the plates too!
