Tour of a Lifetime : Held at the Border

While attempting to travel from Pakistan to India, the team was split up at the border. The two countries were in the midst of a war, and tensions were high. As citizens of the British Commonwealth, which ruled India, the British team members and Bob Kap, a Canadian citizen, were allowed to cross the border, while the rest of the team waited in a small village with poor accommodations for two days awaiting special visas. Kap shared the news of the team reuniting in this birthday telegram to his children, and the team took this photo at the border crossing to commemorate the event.
