... crew. Dinner for just two once again and it was lovely!

Our hotel is VERY comfortable, 'Lingkhar Lodge', we are in a villa overlooking the mountains, quiet and for a 3 star, very smart. We were both exhausted and had yet another early start in the morning to start our trek so ate, showered, sorted our camping gear for the next 8 days and slept fitfully. I sleep so much better when ...

... sounds terribly attractive! At one point I suddenly became aware that Jono was waving at me and shouting "Eagles!!" and there swooping across the bright blue sky were two Golden Eagles! Magnificent birds and one flew directly over my head, the wing span of over two metres and then the two of them locked talons before spiralling out of sight.

We have become semi-obsessed with the terraced rice paddies, and Larry probably has enough pictures of them to fill a camera memory card. Rice, of ...

Let me try to describe what a day, this day, was like.

I woke up around 6; Larry, as usual, was up earlier. He headed out to take pictures of two women harvesting rice in the terraced fields next to our hotel. Breakfast at the hotel was pretty simple: a choice of scrambled eggs, rice, toast, and corn flakes. Unfortunately, the only choice for coffee is instant Nescafé. I miss the good coffee of home.
