Yes, from Hindistan (India in Turkish) feels like my Russian trip is getting repeated This gentleman was not coming in this direction but just to drop me he has come to this way I refused and said – I can manage to go on my own but he insisted We are not able to talk properly as Google Translate is not working but till now what I clearly understood is… he was surely not going this way but now he… along with his child helping me by going out of his way I dont know how to say thank you very very very very much…. The child is so sweet I couldn’t offer him much but have given those candies to him now he is enjoying those with a beautiful smile this place is beautiful even the people are This looks like Uttarakhand like roaring ‘Bhagirathi’ flowing down from the Himalayas and this place looks like Karnaprayag… Rudraprayag… this is Çamlı hemşin
