So internet is 30rps a minute, so here is a quick summary of what I’ve done since arriving in Kathmandu. Keep the texts comming! Love hearing about your day!
WHAT I’VE DONE THE PAST FOUR DAYS:
-met many incredible people
-boulder blocked trail so spent day with local boys who brought me swimming in a natural pool, and then played soccer
-Binod showed me his village, school, and introduced me to a paralized man who before paralized hiked everest 20+ times
-construction of road= huge contraversy
-saw yaks, horses, mules, goats, cows, stray dogs, chickens, ducks, countless birds, and other animals roaming free
-met australian, us, uk, chinese, canadian, and french trekkers and although interesting, I’ve had more fun with locals
– Powell (age 6) taught me to whistle.
-Madan lives in Chitwan but we met in Chame- very intellegent and taught me much about the environment and agriculture- said he would give me tour in Chitwan
-Robie and I had rice beer with a blind man
-blind man taught robbie and I how to make rice beer
-pooped the authentic way
-drove around town to avoid boulder in a jeep driven by four brothers no older than 14 and seven other passangers while blastic Napli music- most surreal experience of my life
-Hiked to Chame- indiscribable
-lots of yummy food, beer, and tea- gained 20lbs already
-invited into woman’s kitchen to see how she makes food- we drank Napli wine and spoke in handgestures
-Robie is just perfect- teaches me a ton
-Hiked the most incredible 6hr trail to Pisang- words can’t do it justice
-met more incredible locals
-got chased by a yak
-trekked 7hrs to Manang- seriously, photos won’t even do it justice
-drank more delicious tea, ate more delicious food
-sat on a roof with french woman gazing at the painted backdrop called our “hotel view”
Even with a broken backpack, a new blister everyday, sunburnt hands, and cloths that won’t dry- I am having the time of my life. This doesn’t do the past few days justice, but it’s the best I can do right now.
Journalling every day, so I will go back an edit when I can!
Love you all!
