After finishing breakfast, I walked back to my room and saw a sign pointing to the rooftop to see a city view. I followed it to the forth floor. This was what I saw when I got there.. It was bone-chilling cold but the view was stunning..

On my second night at the guesthouse, the hosts were cooking for a Thai family which was going to leave the next day. I was invited join them the dinner. By the time I arrived the guesthouse, they still prepared their dinner so I sat with them, learned how to do it and helped them out..
I ended up finding this road which I vaguely remembered from my previous trip that we used to stop around here buying some fruits. I didn’t have much time to walk then. But on my second time, I had discovered and seen a lot of more things than in my first trip.. This made me enjoy walking alone in this town more..
When I was there I walked along this road everyday and many times a day. I liked walking around seeing people and taking photos of the street sellers. As the weather was very cold, my major activity apart from taking a day trip was walking this street taking photos..
It was my most fave place to hide away from the world and be alone. When not going out for a day trip, I liked going here and tried different kinds of hot tea. I could sit here for hours writing in my diary and postcards, reading a book or just watching people pass by. It was on the second floor of the build so it gave a good view to watch the world go by..
There were so many kinds of nut there and I am a nut lover. My most fave is walnut. They sold them along the corner of the street. I liked walking there tasting different kinds of nut and bought some back home..
I would see lot of shops selling winter clothes and other accessories to keep away the cold. The winter there is very harsh. Even around the end of October while I was there, the weather was very very cold.. But for some people, the weather was not so cold for them. Some still wore thin jacket when going outside, while I wore so many layers inside.
Saleem, the owner of the guesthouse, told me that 70% of the people in Leh were Muslim. Every morning around 4 am, I would hear prayer from speakers of the mosque while sleeping at the guesthouse..
right after getting up from a nap, I grabbed my camera and walked into Leh town. I’d missed it so much and couldn’t wait to greet it again. First stop was a Tibetien temple. I’d walked past it everytime I walked back to the guesthouse. The first time I came to Leh, I had never walked inside it. But this time, I walked inside and around, sat at the stone step and looked around. Quite a serene place to just sit and get lost in my own thought.
Every morning, we were served with this Ladakhi breads and chai (Indian milk tea).. They were delicious eaten in chilly weather.. I like them a lot and I am missing them now.. I’d learned to make this bread when I was in Nubra Velly..
