Karakoram Highway

Erik and I had in advance flown to Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, so we could take care of all the official stuff with official permits and other permissions. Then our expedition doctor Henning Beck would follow four days later together with the two young climbers, Jacob and Jakob. Which I was not very pleased with, as they thus could not take part in the preliminary work with permissions, customs formalities, briefing and expedition shopping in Islamabad.
