"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

Our Daily Bread

For the duration of our stay in Ladakh, all the meals tasted remarkably good.
Whether their appeal was coloured by the many hours we spent outside, in the cool of high altitude, is difficult to judge.
But freshly baked, Ladakhi naan breads are pretty close to heaven!

    Gosh, that music took me right back to Abertillery! The bread looks superb.

    • Just a minute, while I “google” Abertillery..

      Ah, yes I see. That explains why you’d be less church than chapel!

        Indeed. The Ebeneezer Baptist chapel where I spent a great deal of time taking part in ‘Recitations’. It is now styled a church, but I’m not sure I like that.

        • I was brought up in a “bells and smells” tradition, but love the music which the British low church has given the world.

          Am not sure if I’d feel so comfortable with “fire and brimstone”, while teetotalism is something I just couldn’t cope with!

            Teetotalism? That’s the Methodists, not my lot! We like a bit of fun…
            I don’t recall any fire and brimstone either, our Pastor was a dear old softie.

            • Sorry!

              I was just showing my ignorance, and assumptions, about churches outside of the Catholic tradition..

              And I know nothing about C of E or Catholic Churches. Other than I once went to a Catholic Church and heard a little bell then thought – Ah, Tinkerbell. I am a Pagan at heart!
