Time Check: 0625 Thursday 15th July

Location: The LAL Inn Khorog.

The LAL Inn is a reasonably well appointed hotel run by a hard faced and humourless Russian who looks like Putins brother. We have a interesting Pigeon Loft at the end of our corridor....

Highlights: Mega good Indian meal last night in the Aga Khan Foundation Building:

Group Update: The Vegetarian has suddenly started to eat chicken for some reason.... No incidents to report apart from some discontent about single room allocations.

We have been on the go since leaving Dushanbe on Monday. Khorog is a 1/4 Horse Town and regional centre for this area. There is a small airport/landing strip which is equipped with the latest "wind sock". There a high mountains at both ends of the Runway and apparantly the slightest cloud means NO FLIGHTS.

Today we are travelling to Ishkashim in the Wakhan Corridor (shared with Afghanistan). We are now heading into a more remote region so there will be no internet for another few days...........
