Out of the bubble......... One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.-- Henry Miller

Got a bit behind again...............

NEPAL | Sunday, 14 June 2009 | Views [603]

Didn't make it all the way to Phedi. Climbed up to the pass, but all three of us felt a bit weak today. We had rumbling stomachs (yogurt, milk?). So the climb was harder and slower.....

Passed the pass Salpa Hanjyang at fairly good weather, but soon after the sky started darkening and growling again - soon it rained buckets and - of course - hailed, mothballs size ice pieces this time. The heavens kept growling like I have never heard before in my life. This thunderstorm was circling over our heads until the evening and the trail kept descending - almost vertical in some places. It really wasn't my day again and I wanted to be home.

Found a place - a dorm for porters with an altar - no bathroom, but friendly and dry, good enough....
