Himalayan Road


This is like when I traveled from Bilbao in northern Spain to Toulouse in the south of France. There were all these terrifying cliffs that we drove near, but somehow, just because I was on a bus with so many others and I knew that countless people had traveled it before, I wasn't as scared as you'd expect. You probably don't get so much of that feeling driving in the Himalayas though.

A friend of mine traveled the Indian Himalayas. He said that by the sides of the roads there are signs letting you know that the governemnt department in charge of road maintenance "is praying for your safety".
