There were two potential hiking options this morning – the first was head up the side of the nearest hill to see the village. Oh, about a 1700 meter change in elevation just for the sake of some exercise.
The other option, which funny thing everyone chose, was to walk along the local “road” aka potholes and rocks with the occasional pounded flat surface to a village on the same level. Distance? Also about 4-5 km each way with minimal change in elevation.
The afternoon had been listed as optional swim in the Seti (no one was that brave or stupid) or take another hike. I really think that tea, coffee, mocha and common sense prevailed.
Mocha? Oh yes, we started this at Mala Lodge. Hot chocolate was on offer. Since it actually was powder rather than made from real ingredients, obviously dumping a spoonful in coffee made just as much sense….
