The true meaning of 'Open Space' architectural planing.

The areas of India's northern state of Himachal Pradesh are very mountainous and often submerged in clouds.

The cliffs around this village are so steep that I've seen the passangers of a local bus step off and walk behind as the driver proceeded around a sharp curve. Local goat sheperds I was sharing a Beedi with told me that's a safety precaution in case the bus looses ground or slips. Then after they board the bus again and proceed

I wanted to have a glimps of the canyon depth but the winds were so strong I was afraid to near the road margins. I decided to approach by crawling and the sight was only comparable to a flight window. The cars on the the road running along the base were so small they looked like little toys.
