The Adventure Continues!

A travel blog entry by ritawritatravel


... it’s safe to say unless someone pulled out an iphone, it didn’t get recorded.

The storm continued throughout the night as our CEO (Chief Experience Officer) didn’t sleep a wink. While the morning was dry enough for the camel ride, it was delayed, which had a few panicking as it was originally supposed to leave at 530am for the sunrise – by the time we awoke, the sun had already risen. Fresh after the storm, the landscape looked renewed and ...

Proverbial Day We'll Never Forget

... tickets. Ironically, no official ever verified our ticket at the gate, and we simply drove in. Once past there, the shysters (as I called them) were not to be seen again until we drove out the following morning.

It was no problem to find our guide while once inside. I parked and a man approached, using my name as his bona fides to prove that he in fact DID work for Mehedi. We followed him through this ramshackle town, which was not much more than a small grid ...

Not quite as bad as the 700+ steps up to Half Dome at Yosemite, but close. Truly, an amazing day.

The busride was comfortable (airconditioning, only half the seats were taken), but rather uneventful. The curtains were drawn against the sun, which was just as well as behind them there wasn't that much to see anyway. Just a lot of rocks and dust, and the occasional tree. How these trees were able to grow in the rubble and barren ground was beyond me, especially since Ahmed the masseur had told me the region hadn't ...
