Max Morris here. Here a few moments that I appreciated during the past two weeks.
We packed up everything from the hotel, lugged all of our bags two blocks to the train station. We set up all of our packs and made a little circle waiting for our train. After a while of being panhandled and encouraged to purchase what we believed we zipper pulls, I decided to pull out some watercolors. After about 5 minutes of painting, I’d drawn a crowd of 5 people who just watched me paint. It was something else.
I got sick the morning after we got into Sainji Village. That was an experience all in its own. Eventually Will and Chao took me to a hospital and apparently I had some kind of parasite. I’m all good now.
