going! So the main street is packed, guys. Even dogs are joining the party! As expected a lot of people here, late today, walking down the streets of the beautiful town capital of Ladakh! Where people gathered to take part in the Independence Day Festivities. So, with Saliha, we are not Indian; I'm French Saliha is Turkish, but we still enjoy and tag along to the party; because it's we know, it's a special day for the Country. You know, in France our National Day which is not related to Independence, but to pretty much the fall of the Regime; we had a king until 19 sorry 1789. So, for us it was a bit of a bloody day because we are pretty much celebrating the day where French people went to the massive riot! And, took a prison which is called the Bastille Prison in Paris. And later on we beheaded the King. It was a
very bloody part of our history, because the Kingdom was definitely not the way to go, and the Republic came. So that's at least something we have in common, you know. We both our countries went from a King Kingdom to a Republic. Guys, I just met,
