Heaven on Earth.

So, now for my trip up north. WOW. Words are so confining when it comes to drescribing the feel, smell, awesomeness and beauty of the place I went to on April Holiday. I think I will just have to resort to Spicer's method of ten, and some pictures. For a bit of background info. I went up north near the Chinese border for a week of break. It took two days of driving to get there and a 1 hour flight to get back. I went with 5 other staffers and one student.

Hunza Top Ten

10 – Eating breakfast in a Chai shop over-looking the Indus River.

9 – Standing on the spot where the Himalayan, Hindu Kush, and Karakoram Mountain Ranges meet.

8 – Hunza Tea (Tomoru Tea)…the best in the world.

7 – Our nightly Skip-bo sessions.

6 – Waking up every morning to some of the highest mountains in the world!

5 – The near-death experience of riding on the KKH (Karakoram Highway) and dragging our gas tank for about two miles till the driver figured out that it wasn’t a flat tire!

4 – Picking up Garnets beside the road….yes, that’s real semi-precious stones…by the handful!

3 – Being invited in to a village house for lunch and a lesson on how to make chapatti’s

2 – Doing a day trek up to a glacier meadow then walking across a water channel carved into a sheer rock face 400 ft. high! An architectural phenomenon built over 200 year ago!

1 – Going across and Indiana Jones style suspension bridge!! Whoohoo!!
