Update 6/8/2004 Askoli:
Today we have been getting up at 5.30. At 6.30 we should have
been leaving for Askoli, but our LO took one more hour. After a drive without
any trouble we have been arriving here at 14.00. Yesterday evening somebody
stole a pair of walking poles from me in the hotel. Luckily I have an extra
pair with me. My Thuraya is still not working.
Payu: My Thuraya phone
has been damaged, that’s why at the moment I can not send daily dispatches. I
have ordered a new one in Islamabad, which should arrive in a week’s time.
Yesterday we have been walking to Jhola in cloudy weather, which was fine as
it was not so hot. In the afternoon I got some bad diarrhoea which kept me
busy during the night. It has become better now after lots of Imodium. Today
we are in Payu. The planned resting day tomorrow has been skipped so we will
move on to Urdukass tomorrow. The porters have recognized that I have some
medicine with me and continue coming with Blisters and cuts. Today I have
plastered more than 30.
