"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)

Altitude, temperature, bleakness, beauty, exhaustion and spirituality: all had played their parts.

We visited a far-away, alien culture and were greeted with friendly innocence and hospitality.

  2. Thoroughly enjoyed this journey from the comfort of my home! The view of the snow-covered mountains still continues to elicit a catch of breath.
