Off to Ladakh

Delhi, India

I was in Delhi just long enough to chill for 24 solid hours in the placid darkness of an AC hotel room, meet a fellow IndiaMike-er ("TNog") by chance in Saravana's, and book my JetAirways flight to Leh, Ladakh.

It was so simple and painless, it almost took my breath away. Ladakh has always seemed so distant and exotic, it's hard to believe it has an airport that accomodates jet planes.

Ladakh, literally "Land of High Passes" - Whee-ha! Twill be my first ever experience above 10,000 feet. Altitude sickness, here I come!
