Too much wind at the Shingga La Pass

Wednesday, 11 October 2017

I am in the village of Chikka and have experienced great hospitality here. Unfortunately I ripped my jacket and glider on the Shingga La Pass, due to strong wind. I have repaired them with sticky cloth, and am waiting for better conditions.

Basti has flown to Keylong and landed there. That is not allowed. What he did not know is that he landed 200m from to the police station. As he took off in Padum (other district), he did not have to pay 10 dollars penalty, but do a 10 doller donation, and he got his glider back. The negotiations took a whole day, so it was not bad that I arrived later. My bus trip from the pass was so adventurous that I do not want more bus rides on the mountain roads!

Ich bin im Dorf Chikka und habe dort tolle Gastfreundschaft erlebt. Leider zuviel Wind am Shingga La Pass wo ich mir bei einem Startversuch meine Jacke und den Schirm eingerissen habe, konnte aber alles gut geflickt werden.

Der Basti ist ja nach Keylong geflogen und dort gelandet. Das darf man nicht. Was er nicht wusste, ist, dass er 200m neben der Polizeistation gelandet ist. Nachdem er aber in Padum (anderer Distrikt) gestartet war, musste er nicht 10 Dollar Strafe zahlen, sondern eine Spende von 10 Dollar machen, woraufhin man ihm den Schirm wieder gegeben hat... die Verhandlungen haben einen ganzen Tag gedauert, also war es gar nicht schlimm, dass Boxi erst später kam. Und die Busfahrt auf dem Pass war so abenteuerlich, dass keiner mehr Lust auf weitere Busfahrten auf den Bergstraßen hatte!
