Waiting in Leti

I’m staying with Cahmu Singh Korungla and his mother in Leti. The area is called Napani. Last night he is sure to make plans for us to go to Sikar in the morning and return by evening. He repeats his plans over and over again adding that we’ll go to a nearby mountain the day after to get a view of the Himalayas. After repeating his plan so many times he asks, ‘Should we go to the nearby mountain tomorrow and Sikar the next tomorrow?’ ‘I’m OK with either plan,’ I tell him. ‘We’ll go to the mountain in the morning, then Sikar the next tomorrow, then Pindari glacier the next tomorrow.’

After a nice long sleep in my new warm sleeping bag, Chamu tells me his new plans of going to the mountain view in the afternoon and going to Mringthuni glacier instead of Pindari glacier because Pindari glacier is closed. This is the first I’ve heard of Pindari being closed and I don’t think I believe him.

So far there’s been a lot of talk, but I will wait patiently to see if he knows the area as well as he says he does. All of a sudden he tells me that he may have to leave for Haldwani tomorrow and stay for a few days. Of course everything happens all-of-a-sudden, it’s expectation that cause perceptions of time to become insufficient.

So many plans being made. I’m enjoying his hospitality, but it seems silly to keep making such general itineraries. I’ll wait and see.
