Another photo taken from the cockpit today. This one was taken over northern Afghanistan, heading north west, just after dawn. The terrain looked incredibly inhospitable; deep ravines, high mountains and sharp ridges, all covered in snow. It’s a wonder people manage to survive in such conditions, let alone fight. My day has been all about travel. I left the hotel in Delhi at 10 last night, UK time, and was airborne at around midnight. The flight time to Paris was over 9 hours, followed by another flight to Heathrow, a coach to Ringwood and a kindly lift home from Mum and Dad. I was indoors shortly after 4 this afternoon. 18 hours straight travel doesn’t leave much time for a photo that has a focus on anything other than……..travel. I’ve eaten, unpacked, kissed the wife, blogged and I’m off to the bath before crashing…… More tomorrow.
