Day 5 - Why not coconut

After a good night sleep in the tent the porters break up camp while we are having breakfast. Again no Dalbat for breakfast but rice porridge, I didn't like porridge as a kid and still don't like it as an adult but I hate or am afraid to hurt chef feelings.

The trail starts to become more and more spectacular just as described in the book of lies (lonely planet). We walk over seemlessy endless ridges, climb up and down big mountains wade through rivers, use all or our acrobatic skills to jump from stone to stone to keep our feet dry. If that's not enough we cross long canopy bridges and even decaying bamboo bridges. The more we trek up and down hill the more tired we become and soon realize that we cannot reach Tatopani without killing ourselves.

For lunch chef made a Nepali tuna sandwich wich chapatis and some "jungle" veggies he found during the trek, the only thing missing is some ketchup so we ask chef if he can fetch some ketchup. All he says is "Why not coconut" and gets the ketchup for us. And when we decided that we didn't want to go to Tatopani this day, chef's reaction was "Why not coconut" and smiled happily as he didn't need to do some walking anymore this day.
