“Pleure: les larmes sont les pétales du cœur.” ~ Paul Éluard
In the Heart of Eagle’s Nest (2/4) . . .
The camping site looked exactly as one would imagine. An open field, some camps, a bonfire place and a dining hall( the only constructed area other than the kitchen, restrooms and a boundary wall). We went straight to the dining hall after returning from our failed photography venture. The dining hall was just a huge hall with one big table in the center and chairs lined up all around it. On one side was a big glass window that faced the camping field and on the other side a set of refrigerators were lined up. . . .
What made us go towards the dining hall was the sound of Rubab (musical instrument) being played. A couple of hunzai guys, who themselves were music students, were playing Rubab and Tumbuk at one end of the table . They were surrounded by a small audience. We joined them. They played from a diverse range of genres . Game of thrones OST was a hit amongst the listeners. My personal favorite were the local melodies. . . .
The small musical session ended when the dinner was served. Dinner time was a fun exchange of “getting to know each other” amongst the group members. Right after dinner, bonfire was lit in the camping field and then, as you would expect, it was a long night of music and singing (mostly wrong lyrics). When the fire went out and we ran out of wood, we moved the party inside the dining hall again. . . .
The room was full of energy and positivity and no one wanted the fun to end. However, we had to see the sunrise in the morning so everyone went to their camps to sleep. The Hunzai boys kept playing the magical Rubab and Tumbuk along with singing local songs till early morning while everyone slept peacefully in between the mountains, in their camps. . . .
