Photographers being what they are, as soon as we found ourselves at the top of the pass, we were required to wait for the sunset. Mint tea was duly consumed from a pretty little silver teapot, itself from a lonely cafe outpost, a quaint little nod towards civility in a landscape scrubbed raw by the elements. A beautiful photograph later and the sun has set, leading us to the inescapable conclusion that we have to drive down the other side of the pass at night. Barry turns pale. I turn on the lights, which, for some unknown reason don't appear to be working properly. I mention this to Barry, and then decide that we'll probably be ok as I can now see via the pale luminosity of Barry's corpse-white face.
