He is the Highlander

MacLeod Ganj, India

After the hectic 24-hour scam that was Delhi, it is nice to be in the relaxed northern mountains of India. We're staying in the adopted home of the Dalai Lama, a quiet little honky oasis in the Himalayas. It's a bit distressing that the spiritual center of Tibetan Buddhism is such a tourist-fest, but it's still a damn sight more relaxing than Delhi.
Tomorrow, we will be starting on a four-day hiking tour of the Kangra Valley, culminating in a supposedly spectacular view from Indrahara Pass, 4350 meters above sea level. There's going to be a glacier and everything.
