Getting incredibly frustrated by now, I started ...
While holding on to the side of the truck’s metal rail, the driver drove down the paved road towards what appeared to be a rural area. Beautiful mountains seemed to follow us along and fields of richly green color vegetation. Huts where people lived were also seen covered by dust giving me an insight of life around here.
