Day 16: The Shandur Pass
It's all good anti-government stuff. According to my guide, it's a popular grouse on both sides of the Pass that the government praises the spirit of the mountain communities but fails to put any money their way.
Like any good comedian his eyes flick round the audience, and pretty soon alight on me. To gales of laughter he tells me that his people pray constantly for the restoration of British rule and he asks me to tell the Queen that if she gives them each a thousand rupees she can have their village back.
