Lhalung welcomed us when we were tired and took us home with a wonderful host family. As a beautiful day welcomed us and we enjoyed Spitiian bread with jam, I realized, Lahlung was comfortable and warm. It was also modern. The people farmed on one side and on the other cheered for PV Sindhu in the Olympics. These were people who were in charge of their life, without network. And at the base of it, these were happy people.
Lhalung is beautiful. And on my last night in a Spiti Homestay, it comforted a tired soul with memories of home and good people. I was in a place with no network, TV and a modern bathroom, but I was also home.
