... Chinese woman again for dinner overlooking the Fewa Tal (Pokhara's expansive lake) where I tried and failed to learn some Mandarin. For some reason she tried to teach me how to say "give me all your money!", which confused the hell out of a Chinese family on the next table.

So, about 11.30 I set off through the forest, heading for the dam at the end of the lake. Met a couple coming up soon after I started down, then an American couple with their 2 daughters, also heading up. The path was quite clear, at first!
