Our days have been spent getting a few things organised for the ABC trek which we are about to embark on. Trying to find the best quality fake North Face sleeping bag in town has been a 3 day challange but we feel we got a reasonable deal. The people here are really lovely but its evident that there aren’t as many tourists as usual and they are all very desperate for our business which does get annoying! Not only has Nepal had the fuel crisis recently but they also have an electricity shortage which means some days they have 16 hours with no electricity, so with all this bad publicity, it’s keeping much needed tourists away.
Dean is currently cooking some pasta to have ready for when Dave arrives. The food so far in Nepal has been simillar to Indian food only a little lighter. We have been living on momos as it feels like the lightest, less Indian option but today Dean finally cracked and ordered a vegie burger which was served with chips and coleslaw…and fresh tomato… it made him so happy… I didn’t know a burger could make a man so happy! We always eat the local food wherever we are but after about 2 months of heavy oily food, we just needed a day out, so pasta and red wine it is 🙂
Dave has just arrived after a very long journey to get here so its time to crack the wine! We leave for the ABC trek tomorrow which will take between 7-10 days and we will have no internet or service the whole time…I’m not sure if this or the walk will be the biggest challange!
Love to all xxxx
