This will be our last day in the mountains of Nepal as we trek back to the airport at Lukla. We’ll be watching the weather closely to see if we think we’ll get out of Lukla on schedule. This fine adventure will soon be coming to an end.

Find Your Fit Fact
Physical activity does not have to be vigorous or done for long periods in order to improve your health. A 2007 study of inactive women found that even a low level of exercise – around 75 minutes per week – improved their fitness levels significantly, when compared to a non-exercising group.
Find Your Fit Activity Suggestion: Thin Ice
Materials Needed: 9 hula hoops per group.
Using the nine hula hoops the instructor should make a grid which the children must navigate. The ice is only safe on certain hula hoops meaning there is only one correct way to get out of the “ice”. If a student were to walk on thin ice they would have to go to the exit the way they entered and go to the back of the line. Eventually by trial and error and the students remembering which routes are correct they will be able to exit the ice and finish the game.
