Did I tell you about how I almost died on this road?
I almost died on this road.
No exaggeration, a wheel of the cab was off the road, on the way down the plunging hillside. Specifically the wheel on the passenger seat side, where I was sitting.
The rest were in the back and slid out the other door and there I was, clutching my bag, clenching my teeth, thinking of ways to save my skull in a very possible crash. (The cab was in tatters, its safe to say there were no air bags). The idiot driver (who I am assuming was drunk 🙄) told me to get out, I was like, where bro? Down to my death?
Just to be sure, I opened the door to check for any escape route, there was literally no ground to step on.
At the end of the day, it was my girls who saved me. They heaved and pushed the car back on the path. I need to mention here, there were two very able guys walking down the road and chose to gawk and ignore and walk on.
Karma is a bitch lads, one fine day, you shall know.
Was I scared? Yes. Would I go again? Hell yes.
PS - word of caution to travellers coming down from the Dharamkot basecamp towards McLeodganj, please do a whiff test and check the reliability of the cabbie
