ARARAT BASE CAMP 2500M
I walked to the base camp today with guides. It was a different kind of day as there was no investigating, just walking in the hot sun. The Kurdish like their picnics (spelt piknik here), so we had one at the base camp, a barbecue. One advantage of using a horse.
Zaffa pointed out to me on the mountain the height at which Donald disappeared. It was strange to be so close and to think that his remains might be up there.
I have made important discoveries on this trip which I am advised would be best kept quiet at the moment.
Suffice it to say, this trip has not been wasted time.
My Hotel: Hotel Ararat.
