Every morning as we were about to depart on our trek, we’d open the door, and the musty smell would be completely overwhelming. You knew the air you were breathing was slowly punishing your lungs — I think a castle dungeon would have more appealing! Ok, that’s hyperbole. Not really. Maybe, a little.
