border shock

so we finally got our ever so dusty trusty land cruiser down off everest – i say trusty, we had 2 punctures, the rear brakes siezed up and my door was help shut with gaffa tape.

at the chinese border we were greated with stern gaurds taking they’re job seriously, i almost had my camera confiscated.. we were surronded by chinese touts on a back drop of concrete and nasty chinese buildings, as i remember it was damp and cold, no one spoke a word of english. we crossed the bridge to nepal it to a warm and sunny red soil street. check point was a homely office, everyone spoke fluentish english, baskets of indian food, every single thing changed in an instant. WTF.
