Traveller’s tale: While crossing the river near Aalo (also known as Along) via a hanging bridge, we noticed this group of men floating downstream in a raft. They seemed completely at ease travelling on a raft that was made of just logs bound together. We learnt that this was the usual mode for villagers living along the river to travel to the main town, at least one way (downstream). Otherwise, they would most likely have to walk.

About We That Travel

Indulging in our memories of journeys far & wide. One caveat: photographic memories and tales to tell are a must. With the song from the Dixie Chicks playing in the background, hit the road! "Hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling Lived like a gypsy Six strong hands on the steering wheel I've been a long time gone now Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down But I've always found my way somehow By taking the long way Taking the long way around"
