Note: those links will take you to the photos for each day – but they display in reverse order. If you go to my “Hindu Kush Adventure set, you’ll see my photos in the correct order.

Here is what to do if you want to download a copy of any of the photos:

1. Click on the photo you want to download so that only it is displayed on the page. Just above the photo and under the title, you’ll see a magnifying glass icon with the label “All sizes”. Click on this.
2. You’ll now be on a page for that photo that lists all the available sizes you can download it in. Click on the description of the size you want. It will display in your browser. I would choose “Original” – especially if you are planning to print the photo – as this will be the best quality. But it will take up the most room on your PC.
3. When you have decided which version of the photo you want, click on the “Download the X size” link.
4. Your PC will ask you where on your PC you want to save the photo. I’d create a new folder somewhere called something like “Mary’s Photos from the Hindu Kush Adventure”. Click on OK and the photo will save onto your PC.

And if you want to put faces to names:
