We did manage to tick through our plan and get all 5 done, but those simple 5 actions turned out to be quite the adventure. The first part of the journey was defined by many hours of uncomfortable bus/jeep journeys. The second part by many/days hours of walking. I’ll post some of the random thoughts I had along the way, because it turns out that there isn’t much to do in the evening in upper mustang apart from endeavor to stay warm and think/write.
