... reached the valley, we soon found out that our swimming lake was no higher than ankle deep, it being summer and all. Well I got my feet and face wet at least before we loaded up the bikes and made the journey home. On our way back to base we were all witness to a tragic event. About 250 meters ahead of our dusty road we saw a pack of dogs fooling about, as our vehicle approached, our driver never hooted, he never slowed down, he never even ...
