All the rain of yesterday had cleared out as of early this morning. 7/10 elected to get up at the crack of dawn, dugout canoe down the river and walk in the jungle. All before 0930 when we were to head to the airport.
I thought about it seriously. River water, camera, hike, dirt, pack vs plane travel. In a very unusual decision for me, I skipped all of the above in favor of a leisurely breakfast, chatting over coffee with the other two who didn’t head out and otherwise being ready to leave on time.
It took longer to drive to the airport than it did to fly – all of 18 minutes on the flight and a few views of the eastern end of the Anapurna Range. All that rain certainly didn’t completely clear the air as you can see.
A quick lunch stop after arrival on our way to the Gokarna lodge.
A quiet afternoon followed by a farewell dinner. As of mid evening – luggage is repacked. I still have some Nepali Rupees and my flight is not till 2045 tomorrow evening.
