How many days does it take to track down lost baggage? (especially hockey sticks)
How many people does it take to get a mobile switched back on?
How many pieces of paper does it take to get your internet connection fixed?
How many officials does it take to let a few kids on the ice?
Welcome back to the Indian Himalayas. Things are different here in many ways. I walk for my water each morning; and get the chance to hear the neighbourhood news from the women at the tap. I have slight fear of slipping of frozen yak pee; and know that "take care" is a good phrase in my vocabulary these days. My house owns the only Canadian Tire shovel in Leh City and it sure was a charm on the freshly fallen snow this morning.
Wait til the kids see THEIR Canadian Tire shovel - to use on the ice rink out at Gophuks next week, when Graham and Tobie arrive from Banff to start Part 3 of Winter Camp.
And yes, said shovel is in said lost and then damaged luggage. We'll keep you posted on how that turns out.
Here's a YouTube Video of the Under 16 Boys from Winter Camp as they got to enjoy participating in the Junior Tourney at Leh. Back to the big city after a wonderful 10 day Winter Camp Part 1 in Domkhar - far from the madding crowd. Hey and look at those LCC jerseys they're skating in.
