In the morning, Ayub and Khalil take charge of hiring porters to carry our things. With the flooding, and recent instability in Pakistan, treks have been fewer this year, so work in the area is scarce. Order begins to dissolve as desperate porters grab bags and run off with them, just to be assured they will be porters on our expedition and get some pay. Khalil tries to run them off with his pickax, but isn't entirely successful. Nothing is lost, but a couple of porters get their jobs this way.
