"I took pack from here [1/2 from Namche] to Hotel Taiva much to amusement, I was told, of the Sherpas who saw my porter following behind carrying nothing. We arrived about 1445. Hotel "comfortable" for these parts. Dorm style - 10 beds in room 2 Rs/each. Stove in room helps a bit. Alt. here 11,300 ft."
"SuTani + a tuber, white but tastes like a sweet potato.
Kosi, Khola, Nadi = all words for stream, creek, river."
" As originally agreed, my porter returned from Namche to his home in Wahko, the morning of 1010. I decided not to hire another porter."
