I love this place. The language barrier was a little difficult but the people were beautiful anyway. The history of the place is intriguing and just experiencing a seriously different way of life was incredible.
I travelled very, very light on this trip. I took an M3, 35/50/90 lenses and about 35 rolls of film. I did take an Oly 35RC as a backup. I think next time I'll cut the 50 and Oly - rarely used them. The rest of my gear weighed about 8kg and packed into just the bottom of a backpack. I spent a week and a half travelling by motorbike, so it was handy to be able to strap it on the back of the bike quickly and easily.
