Back – alive

Von admin, 2. April 2008 22:00

Hey guys,

I made it back to Pokhara safely after an awesome time in the mountains!

The trek was just the right thing to do and I wouldn’t want to miss it at all. On the other hand, it’s good to be back and enjoy the city since prices are much cheaper down in the valley than up in the Himalaya – to name just one out of many reasons. Other might be: a hot shower, great food, not having to carry a 10 kg backpack all day, not having to pack every morning, …

Wrapping up 16 days in this blog just doesn’t seem to work that well and I hope you will understand. This much though: we were presented a great diversity of landscape, culture and people (and height) and met some really nice people on the way, two of which we might even continue our travels with.
I think Matze will get some pictures online (before I might get a chance to do the same) so you should check on his website (see right column) to get some idea of the whole thing. It’s juts much better than writing it all down again – he did a really good job of wrapping it all up in the past half hour!! :)

Now we will “chill” in Pokhara for a couple of days (3-4) before we might travel to the Terai region and visit Chitwan National Park for 3 days. I plan to be in Kathmandu no later than April 9th and hope everything stays calm and the election will work out fine.
We didn’t have a clue about the situation at the moment. While it feels really safe there must be some bad things happening in the “outer” parts of the country… Nothing that I would know of without a newspaper though!

By the way: due to the high(er) internet rates and partly because I don’t want to be online that much you might not get that much more information here. Thanks for your understanding.

Take care, Nils
