Written at 10:45AM on 27th July 2009. Yeah I was writing that time, and NO, we didnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t get late because of the writing.
Beautiful morning, it rained all night and now everything around is freshly washed and clean. The trees look greener than usual, the spirits feel lighter than usual, there is mild sunlight streaking through the trees, and there is an all round warm feeling. This is hopefully going to be good day. We stayed at this fancy hotel last night and got good sleep. Now it is 10:45 and we still havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t moved. The usual story 🙂
Morale is high this morning, weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re all looking in decent shape, all of us seem to have recovered from being completely battered yesterday, Mike is in his usual spirits, I seem to have caught a mild cold, but itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s all good. I can feel my legs. I can feel that I have worked them well over the last 2 days. The Shimla to Manali was only a warm up. The real challenge lies ahead of us. Mike has been singing ainÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t no mountain high enough. ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a good thing too.
Today, we wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t have much time, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s already late and by the time we leave it will be 11:30. We have to get to Rohtang by 6, which I think is going to be pretty impossible. After that, itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a decent, so that wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t be much of a problem (I hope).
