Donkey Crossing

Welcome to Donkey Crossing! Donkey Crossing is an on-line account of one Limey and one Yank living one Dream. From September 2006 until the end of 2007, we plan to visit friends and family on five continents and immerse ourselves into various cultures, natural phenomena and ways of life. We hope you enjoy our tales and visit often! Cheers, Jason and Rachel Napoli

Jason, Rachel and Donkey Crossing featured in
Chicago's Daily Herald!!!
Read Jamie Sotonoff's article at:
Donkey Crossing Update:
We've fully recovered from our eight day trek through the Himalaya and have made our way to the lush mountain town of Manali, India. After the trek, we endured a two day, twenty-two hour jeep excursion through the Himalaya for a few days of rest in Manali. We feel good and are ready to visit our dear friend Bobby Miller (aka Lozang Zopa) at his monastery in McLeod Ganj, Dharamsala, India.
Our hired jeep took us to the second highest motorable road in the world. The highest pass is on the same stretch of road, but in the opposite direction of our route. "Unbelievable is not it?"
While our jeep reached well above the snowline, oxygen levels were noticeably depleted.

Rachel poses for a shot with our trusted Toyota Qualis on top of the Rohtang Pass. We were treated to multiple snowcapped peaks after an overnight snowfall.

J&R - Love the blog. My mom sent me the article from the Daily Herald. All press is good press!

Can't wait to see you in November. Those terracotta soldiers looked amazing.
