This Day That Year - 16th July 2007

Day 2

Morning in Manali - wake up call at 7 am. Queue to the loo. Departure from Kanchani Koot back to Johnson's Cafe for breakfast. Shopping for woollens, then darts at Johnson's and reminsces of last year - August 2006. Finally departure to Keylong. Rohtang is en route and we're back again. Same rock, same picture, different faces! First of many car breakdowns - fuel tank leaks. 1 car goes ahead, we stay back. I chew gum and hand it to the driver. He chews gum as well. Works to seal the fuel tank for a while. Flag down a truck, get M-seal and the tank is sealed. Adventure begins - we trek down to the stream & then climb into the water pulley. Regrets: no camera! We want to go see the glacier but are prohibited for lack of time. Back to the car & drive to Keylong. Day 2 ends with a slight headache, a cup of tea, biscuits and eventually blissful sleep at the circuit house. Today it's 4 of us + D.
