Jule (joo-lay) from Ley!

Jule, pronounced "Joo-lay" is a wonderful multi-purpose Ladakhi word that means "hello", "goodbye", "please", 'thanks' and "OK". In addition to our Pakistan guide Sadruddin's favourite term of "TK" meaning "OK", we had lots of fun, using TK, OK or Jule. Sometimes all three!

Our drive from Alchi to Ley provided us with a good opportunity …

... the same table. Delighted as they poured what looked like hot soup, they were not so pleased by the taste. In the cups the 'soup' separated out, a layer of yellow fat floating on top. 'Was it meant to be like this?' They swirled the mixture together again and took gulps... 'Err No' the liquid fat was definitely not palatable. Continued exploration up to courtyard and into temples whilst also watching sculptures being made from what looked like a salt dough ...

Stok and Spituk on a scooter

... was not damaged past a few scrapes that may or not have already been there, given these scooters aren't new. As for myself, my wrist has more colors than a rainbow, a little bloody with bits of skin hanging, definitely swollen, while my knee is barely scraped, but the lower inside is bruised on a surface as big as a lemon, which is about how I felt about myself, up to the time it took to realize that there was no way I'd feel sorry for myself, when there was a great day in ...

RIDING IN HIGH ALTITUDE

... I have all these angry, aggressive, powerful visions of fixing all these problems, ******* up people who are giving me the ***** in my life currently and generally ruling the world. It's great. Kind of like being drunk but way way better with much higher chances of success.

Anyway, so that's how I grew some and basically just dropped off the side of the mountain during my first descent of Kardung La. At first I was being responsible ...

Helping out, a bit...

... up a web site for their new digs, the Oriental Memories Villa. We had lunch, composed of rice, lentils and spicy roasted veggees. Very good. Then, I went uphill to the Donkey Sanctuary for about 2.5 kms... But I never found it. I might need to help them get on Google Map too ;-) They offer sanctuary to abandoned donkeys, favoring sick ones and pregnant ones, because of their ...

    The Spic and Span Hotel was great fun. With splendid views of the gorgeous ever changing Stok Kangri Mountain (altitude 6,153 m) and a backdrop of the majestic Zanskar Ranges, this lovely Tibetan styled hotel boasts super friendly and helpful staff, nicely appointed clean rooms and a very pleasant restaurant. We found the food and service very good. We enjoyed relaxing in the small pleasant gardens where we could order food and drinks, including alcohol. Local dance performances were held here also. We would highly recommend this venue.
