This is the last time…

April 20th, 2008

Today was a day when we heard a lot of “this is the last time” - we’ll see Everest, sleep in a tent, etc.
As happy as I am to actually be going home soon, I am more than a bit sad to be leaving this place and the trekking lifestyle we enjoyed for the last two weeks.
We left Namche this morning (another place I really liked and will miss), and are now camping in Phakding again. We had a special dinner tonight (which was like a regular dinner, but with cake), we gave our tips to the staff of 17 that catered us these 2 weeks (a leader, sirdar, cook, 3 assistant guides, 4 kitchen boys, 5 porters, and 2 yak drivers). A short celebration consisted of some dancing and singing (tourist participation awkward yet obligatory). We did get to try home-made chhaang (rice beer) which came in a big blue bucket. I sort of liked it, and could definitely get used to the taste.
