We are in Manali now, staying in a cute, but smewhat dodgy backpackers hostel. But where else could you get million dollar views of the Mountains, for just over $4 a night! :D
han and i just booked a 6 day jeep safari through the spiti valley, including jeep, driver, cook, possibly a guide, sleeping bags, tents. etc, for a very good price. am sooo excited to do this, deserts, glaciers, remote villages, massive lakes... travelers dream!
