Hushe was the first place I visited in the Karakoram, on the Shuffling Dossers' Karakoram Expedition in 1984. We made many life long friendships during that trip. A friend recently posted a picture of Mohammed "Elfi" Ali of Hushe, taken last summer. Here is a picture I took of him back in 1989. He came on many treks with me during the 1980's and 90's.
