    Actually I had a missing in my Day-1, I didn't mentioned Lunch, that we had some where near Kawai in that under construction building.
    Yes we started with our Tin-Packed food on first day Lunch. While getting bike fixed in Balakot, Shakeel bought bread form there and we had lunch there by warming 2 tins of "Kofta" there.

    And no pic with me for that, since I was the "Amma" that moment

    After having lunch, Shakeel, Azfar and Saeed went down to Kunaar river and I was napping in the back corridor of the same building. I was thinking to have 30 minutes for rest but Saeed and Naveed ruined my plans saying "teno boti loor ee arram de"

    Day 2

    After having coffee, group started disappearing as everyone was tired. I and Saeed, chained up 4 bikes(chain was enough for 4 bikes only) and positioned them in a direction to break air flow impact on camps. He then also went for a sleep. I wanted to shot some star trails at night but battery was too low and it remained my dream during all the trip to have a chance for these
    I, Naveed, Saeed and Azfar were accommodated in one camp and Shakeel and Kashif in other. They accommodated lot of stuff in their camp so only 2 could sleep there.
    We all were so tired that no one realized that he is sleeping in camp
    Next day morning first voice I heard was of Azfar..........Imran bhai 6 baj gye hain. Realizing that we have to leave early today, I tried to wake up but I realized that my head and eyes were heavy like stone. Infact I caught flu. So listening the voice of Azfar, I opened other ear to let it out

    I kept on sleeping and during this time I sometimes got view outside from the camp door towards river. First I saw Saeed washing some stuff then I saw Naveed taking bath. But I was not willing to come out of sleeping bag.

    Next voice which tumbled me out with a SERIOUS threat was of Naveed.................."yar ee Nikkay Patti nu phar, eno v vech sutto" [yar ye chotay Bhatti ko pakro oor isay b pani me phainko]

    mMMMmmmmmmmmmmMMM.....
    I opened zipper of bag and then of camp's other side and instantly stood outside of camp..... explaining them that I was not able to bear this threat as I am sick

    Story is that We (me, Naveed and Saeed) used nicks of Patti (Bhatti) for eachother Infact none of us is Bhatti.. Saeed being 52 year old was Wadda Patti, Naveed about 44 Washkarla (middle) Patti and I being Youngster ( @moons hehehe, I am still youngster ) Nikka Patti.

    Day-2 start was quite cheerful as every one was relaxed and fresh now.

    I escaped from Thand Program on sick leave, but then all of a sudden, 2 more braves jumped in........Yes @Muhammad_Shakeel and Kashif. These guys really enjoyed bath there I can not dare this even if I am with good health

    There were tasks in queue for today,
    1- Prepare breakfast
    2- Cook meat from yesterday
    3- Get shoes and clothes dry
    4- Bikes observations and change oil for some of them
    5- Some other small tasks
    and leave for Babusar Top ASAP

    We started for these one by one.

As breakfast finished, we thought of refueling our bikes, and also Kashif's bike got punctured and he was getting it fixed. After refueling all started moving and I was behind them. I was still looking for Bakery and found one. Bought 4 big breads and then moved towards Balakot road. No sign of any member there. Few Km ahead... even then none. I realized that they followed the wrong way and moved towards Bisham route.
    I called them back and then again journey started. On reaching Balakot, Shakeel wanted to have some fixes with his bike and we continued towards Naran. On the way we found worst traffic jams on 4 places. Bike had advantage of moving from sides, so we kept. At a point some 25 km ahead, we stopped and wait for Shakeel and Kashif, who were still in Balakot. At last they arrived and we moved further.

    Here are some shots on the way
