and back to Pokara

Where all the hikers start on many of the loops and treks in this area. The whole place is full of hiking, gear, clothing and trekking supply shops. Along with various tour sellers to support the above.

The morning again was fairly clear –

Our hike out this morning seemed a bit easier than the hike in, but then I think there was actually a bit more downhill this time. Certainly someone decided that the way to start out was 50 bajillion stairs or so. After that – piece of cake.

Our drive wasn’t all that bad considering the roads –

We had dinner in a local restaurant but otherwise had the day free. And – I finally found an ATM that worked. My feeling is that this particular success had a lot to do with the number of tourists needing cash.

About Holly

fiber person - knitter, spinner, weaver who spent 33 years being a military officer to fund the above. And home. And family. Sewing and quilting projects are also in the stash. After living again in Heidelberg after retiring (finally) from the U.S. Army May 2011, we moved to the US ~ Dec 2015. Something about being over 65 and access to health care. It also might have had to do with finding a buyer for our house. Allegedly this will provide me a home base in the same country as our four adult children, all of whom I adore, so that I can drive them totally insane. Considerations of time to knit down the stash…(right, and if you believe that…) and spin and .... There is now actually enough time to do a bit of consulting, editing. Even more amazing - we have only one household again. As long as everyone understands that I still, 40 years into our marriage, don't do kitchens or bathrooms. For that matter, not being a golden retriever, I don't do slippers or newspapers either. I don’t miss either the military or full-time clinical practice. Limiting my public health/travel med/consulting and lecturing to “when I feel like it” has let me happily spend my pension cruising, stash enhancing (oops), arguing with the DH about where we are going to travel next and book buying. Life is good!
