Panorama of Tashkurgan

Saturday, January 26th, 2008

This is a panorama I took in the early morning of 30.10.2006 in Tashkurgan (3,600m) when I was travelling from Kashgar, China to Sost, Pakistan. The bus stopped here overnight before crossing the Kunjerab Pass – the highest border of the world – the day after. I was remembered of this place when watching The Kite Runner yesterday evening. Many scenes play below the fortress of Tashkurgan from where this panorama is taken.

Update: Michael from has just put up a nice picture showing the fortress itself from a different viewpoint.

Two Things

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

There are two things in India that never stop amazing me, even when I am now the second time here and many customs might not feel so special anymore. The first thing is just how dense a queue can be and nobody even seems to notice (I was lucky this time I had to get my ticket at a different counter). If you have been to India yourself however, what will astonish you in this picture that there actually is a queue.

Number Two is just how large a crispy Paper Masala Dosa can be. (Sorry, didn’t fit for the lens of my mobile phone)
