7 2 Trek From Kharta In Rain, Jerome Ryan Getting Cold At Lunch Stop  [25 of 41]


The weather was overcast with low-lying fog and light drizzle. I didnít have a raincoat since I hadnít expected any rain on the trek, so I took a green garbage bag, ripped a hole for my arms, and put it on. Ram led the way as we strolled up the jeep track and after half an hour crossed the river on a log bridge After two hours, he stopped us to have our Ďbag lunchí: a jam sandwich, two hard-boiled eggs, and a few cookies. I donít think any of us finished this bland lunch. Ram wanted to wait for Kumar to catch up, so we lazed around, getting colder and colder in the damp weather.
