Two delicious selfies.
In three days, I’ll be leaving my lovely Kalpa for Nako, for my ultimate journey towards the cold desert of the Spiti valley, a year after my visit to another cold desert: Ladakh.
As I’ll soon be inching closer on my bike towards the same kind of desert mountains, I wanted to share two watermelon selfies taken in August last year on the Leh-Manali highway, on my way to Leh from Vashisht.
A shimmering red slice of watermelon against the desert-yellow mountains of Ladakh.
It was a happy surprise, a gift from heavens when I spotted watermelons at a small restaurant in the middle of nowhere. I needed this, as I was exhausted from riding in the biting midday heat.
