Just a quick update here. We spent one two days in Kathmandu with the guys and then set of on our tour to the Himalayas. Drove halfway to Pokhara and did some cool rafting before. reached pokhara (second largest city I think) Saturday night and here we are now. Exhausted after many days now without too much sleep or food but hanging in there :) It'd now 11 pm and we're leaving tomorrow morning at 7:30 so should get to bed soon. Bought some smaller backpacks to bring and need to get that ready packed and also wash out all the sand from our hair... Will be off for 13 days and should return to Pokhara the 29 so we'll have the 30th to check out the city and relax a little bit before setting of to India on Dec 1. They say it won't be too cold now, maybe just minus 5 degrees C at night but you never know when that'll change so will bring what we can but sucks to carry lots of stuff and then not use it. But this is definitely the one month in the year that's the best to be in the HImalayas because of no rain or snow to fog up the view. Heard a story about a guy who, just one month ago, spent 5 days at Mt Everest Base Camp and didn't see the mountain once! That's just cruel.. But we're really lucky to coincidentally pass by at this time and very happy about that. Now at least, we'll see what happens from tomorrow on and let you know in 2 weeks. you see, there's no internet connection in the Himalayas...but you can get what is rumoured to be the best pizza in nepal... :) Or so our tour operator told us. We'll soon know for our selves. Oh, going to trek to the Anapurna Basa Camp, in case you wondered. We're so excited!!!! See you soon :)
