After a two hour Jeep ride through Shivapuri National Park from Chisopani to the outskirts of Kathmandu, we were welcomed back to the city with an instant case of sensory overload and traffic.
Arriving in mid city amid thousands of motorcycles and Tuk Tuke, we thanked our trek crew and began the transition back from trek/walk life. Life has changed from sleep, eat, walk, eat, walk, eat, sleep to many more choices and options. We dropped into old favourites Momo Tarou and the Rosemary Kitchen to ease our way back into fending for ourselves.
We caught up with Raj and Kumar. We dried all our our camping gear and did a bit of shopping. We are easing in slowly and still managed 13,000 steps today around Thamel. With cell coverage all around, I’ve been posting many photos to social media and I learned that the Grade Fours in Mme Dooley’s class were also following along on the Pretty Big Walk. I want to send a shout out to them as well as the Grade Fives and Sixes at Fogo Central and to the students at St. Anne’s in SE Bight. It was great to have you all along and I’ll post more pictures over the next few days.
Since we’ve mostly been going to bed around 7:30 pm with sunset, it’s time to turn out the electric light and gets some sleep. Tomorrow is another big day.
