It started just like any other, we woke up at 6:48 am, didn't want to get up and eventually pulled ourselves to breakfast. After a delicious meal of boiled eggs, porridge, cereal and omelette we went back to the room only to be herded out by Ryan to start work early. We began by moving all of the rocks ...

... that one feels before meeting a blind date, we went to meet our porter last night. Would he be friendly, old, young, experienced? Would he speak English? Would we feel like he'd get us through the hardest physical and mental challenge of our lives??? With a sigh of relief, we instantly felt that Alon was a great match for us and that we were very comfortable with the idea of spending 2 weeks in the middle of nowhere with him. He already porter-ed on ...
