Friends. I’ve been in Kathmandu now for almost 4 days. 1 day turned into 2 and 3 into 4. I had hoped to catch everyone up on my adventures through Tibet, but ultimately I have run out of time. You’ll have to make up your own stories for now from the photos I posted… I didn’t realize how exhausted I was until I got here, but am feeling much better after loads of good food, some massage and plenty of sleep. A few personal issues from home also left me quite emotionally drained, and in combination with the hectic travel schedule I was running on empty. This is the first city I’ve spent more than 3 nights in since Indonesia, over 2 months ago!
Tomorrow morning I leave for the Annapurna region of Nepal to attempt the two-week Annapurna Circuit trek, one of the world’s classics and another life-list item for me. I’ve spent my time in Kathmandu quite idly, not doing a single tourist activity. Just talking to locals, soaking in the hectic place, resting up and simply catching my breath.
My dear laptop will be in storage for the next few weeks, so I’ll be offline for a while. Thank you to everyone who has commented and e-mailed me as of late, I really appreciate the support and feedback.
