Built in the Ladakhi style, the house had two floors. He took me to the first floor where the gallery opened to five large rooms, one of which served as the kitchen. Raza showed me my room. It looked pretty well furnished and neat. It was a steal deal for 250 Rs..
I wanted to experience cooking at a local's place, and this was happening here. Raza helped me with chopping while I cooked. By 10.30 pm, the food was ready. We had it, and I went to sleep.
The next morning, I woke up to a scenery way different from the spooky place I had seen last night. I was in the middle of a large orchard in this beautiful, traditional Ladakhi mudhouse. Raza was already up, fixing his motor pump to water his garden from the stream running next to the plot.
