To The Extreme - Report 1 - 27/3/2002
Got your message about the radios, there is no need to worry, we will
be fine without them, Mukul explained about the costs being more than
the worth of sending them by courier, and because of more holidays,
like Easter, it wouldnt get here for ages.
We got here very late last night, and to bed about 2:00 this morning,
needless to say there are a few problems, but after a worried arrival
into such a huge and busy community, we found our way to the very nice
hotel by an air conditioned coach (driving worse than Albania mum!).
We were up by 7, and have just had a very good quality breakfast, its
a basic hotel room, but air conditioned, with TV and on-suite, and a
stark view of the city, much like the typical poorer Mediterranean views
across Argastoli in Kefilonia, but without the charm.
Well find the extent of the problems today, apparently one of
the items from the cargo hasnt arrived, but Im hoping that
when they were repacked in London they put a smaller item in one of
the bigger bags, but either way, 22 items are sat in the airport, and
were trying to rush through the releases for them. Were
got to go to the visa offices and other bits and bobs today, and are
looking forward to the excitingly described fly into Leh tomorrow, and
the first sight of the mountain.
Everyone seems well, just very tired.
Take care, and Ill mail when I can next.
