Top: 2 of my 3rd-group English student boys taking the manure sled back home after a trip to the field
Clearing a potato field for footie - a line of guys walking with linked arms to trample the knee-deep snow. I joined in, but after 2 round trips I felt as though I'd played the whole of a 2-hour game, so here I am collapsed in repose, watching the actual game, which ended up being played in the cows' day-paddock, once this had been suitably shovelled of cow-pats (final shot, ball helpfully false-coloured yellow so you can see it!). Such is footie in Ushguli.
