Today is an utmost day of specialness. For all of us North-Hemispherians, it’s the longest day of the year, the day with the most light, the night with the least night, and the summer solstice. To celebrate, allow me to offer you beautiful news in the form of 2 slips of paper glued to my passport. It may be mere paper, but it’s more than mere paper: these visas for China and Pakistan were the most uncertain, as well as the most time, paper, brain, and money consuming of my whole trip. As of now, along with two feet, I have all that it takes to conclude this last bit of road, and make it to the Indian border.
Hallelujah! l’Hamdulillah! Hare Krishna! Om Nama Shivaya! Om mani padme hum!
Speaking of Hamdullilah, I happen to still be in Kyrgyzstan’s capital, Bishkek. It’s been an 8 month break from the walk, oh my god! But I highly enjoyed every sip of highly fermented horse milk, and also really loved my time here. I send you all the love and sacred energy for this sacred day and thank you for being there!
