When I was a schoolboy and was given my own room, I established the Republic of Rumia with myself as sole inhabitant and Supreme Dictator General For Life. Rumia was where my imagination was fertilised, where my toy animals became a reserve forest, where my cars had a highway built for them, and where I was king, rebel, police, pirate...anything I wanted to be. Rumia disappeared when we moved away to a smaller house. It is for me the natural name for my blog.
The World's Highest Traffic Jam
This was a traffic jam I got stuck in on 6th September 2009 around 4 PM. Nothing great, except this is Rohtang La, 3979 m (13054 ft) above sea-level!
