An exquisite view of Indian architecture from the top of the Lamayuru Gompa in Ladakh. Of course, given that these pictures are taken at roughly 11,500 friggin' feet, I can't be arsed to go up there myself. My legs are tired enough after a double shift, and all that is is running around on rubber mats and serving coffee to college students.
Also, I at first took "sponge bath" as a sign of luxurious accommodations, but now imagine it to be a necessity due to lack of running water. I'll find out if I'm right after a bit of wikipedia.
*I haven't followed the X-Books in a while. Is Prof. X walking now? Again?
