During our 7 hr overlay in Mumbai we watched in the neon-lit departures lounge, pictures of flooded Ladakh breaking the news. It was all in Hindi, but there was no mistaking that it was where we were heading too. Some hindi-speaking passengers confirmed that indeed it was Ladakh and that a massive cloudburst lasting less than 20minutes had sent torrents of mud and boulders down the mountains flattening everything in their path. More than 150 dead and another 500 reported missing. A sobering start, that in fact I shouldnt have been too surprised about, considering how close the area borders to Pakistan that has also been suffering an onslaught of weird out of the norm weather. To tired and sad to consider more than getting to Dehli, we camped out in the waiting lounge and tried to get some sleep.
