Indian and Tibetan food were good... but there is nothing like a good pizza!!!!
It has been a long trip, the best moments that come to my mind during the long flight to Milan are βœ”οΈ all the laughs with my fabulous, crazy and unforgettable friends - I love you βœ”οΈ the crazy night in the desert, first dancing and the sleeping under the stars πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ at Khuri Village βœ”οΈ the hard bargaining times with Simo - you never let me down πŸ˜ƒ βœ”οΈ Jaipur Amber Fort and Jodhpur view over the city βœ”οΈ Pangong and Diskit Buddha βœ”οΈ three amazing drivers : Papu on the tuk tuk, Dinesh and Rasool. A particular memory of Rasool driving over Khardung La Pass with the snow. The way they take over on blind curves, beep for no reason and do the craziest moves on the streets is just unbelievable It has been a great experience, 21 days of Indian craziness through Varanasi, Agra, Jaipur, Ranakpur, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer, Leh, Nubra Valley, Pangong and Tso Moriri lakes and finally Delhi!
