Those who know me, know that I'm just not a morning person. I never willingly get up before the sun. It just seems unnatural.
But if you want to truly appreciate the mountains of the Annapurna range, you should see them from Sarangkot at sunrise...or at least that's what they tell me. It's been hazy the last few days, so the opportunity …
Well we finally made it to Pokhara - got a bus from Kathmandu, which wasn't too bad (compared to India)...although a little bumpy!!
