It was freezing on the hill, but we were rewarded with clear skies and excellent mountain visibility. OH!! And no Maoists!! I was actually somewhat disappointed not to encounter any revolutionaries but my wallet felt otherwise. I photographed to my heart's content and we descended quickly reaching our lodge at 8:15.
After brekkie, I retired to my room for my usual read/rest - besides my tummy continued to plague me. Dipak and I wandered down to the village at about 11 and I purchased a few postcards at one of the small shops
After a small lunch of a cheese & tomato sandwich, I finished reading my book, "Fall on your Knees" that I'd purchased in Kathmandu at Barnes & Noble (Ha! Ha! Ha!). I'd noticed a number of used books for sale in the village so Dipak and I walked back down and I traded in my book for another, "Birds Without Wings". It's by the author of "Captain Corelli's Mandolin" and is over 700+ pages. Should last me to the rest of my trek and maybe even the rest of my trip. I took another lie down due to my tummy ache.
Dinner was simple - garlic soup and boiled potatoes as I didn't feel like risking further tummy troubles and I went to bed early.
