Day 12 - Tegan to Turtuk and the closest foriegners can get to the Pakistani Border 220km
When I saw the motif on this gate I thought we were in Pakistan but this is simply a Muslim cemetery
A quick drink for misty
I was feeling artistic and I think that I clearly have a future in the arts
The photos until the Dosa Stall are all pictures of the village of Turtuk which is the closest Indian village to the Pakistani Border. As a European, in geographical location only, it was hard to appreciate the animosity/hate between India and Pakistan.
As my friends will readily point out I do not have the warmest heart towards strangers but this lady was a truly pitiful sight and had the effect of opening my wallet.
Basically a cafe manned by soldiers from the regiment based just down the road.
