Translation – corrected by Juti:-)

OK, I have to admit, it wasn’t Juti, but me :) She sent an email and I put it here in her name. So here’s the translation:

I’ve said goodbye to Gabor (a friend from Hungary) in Delhi and travelled up to the Himalayas :-) I’m not far from Dharamsala (where the Dalai Lama lives), higher up in a village near the “town” called Manali where the only white people are an English boy and me! There’s big snow and freezing cold, in the night we heated the room with wood! The women are weaving on their looms sitting on the terrace and the men are smoking (cigarettes and opium – NOT opium!!!! they smoke hashish), drinking tea, playing cards and cleaning the snow from the streets.
