Today there’s a festival in Kathmandu and a public holiday back home. For us it was a normal start, but thanks to yesterdays long walk my legs refused to walk anything but ponderously slow. I did sleep well though, waking up on my own at 6:45am. The walk wasn’t really that hard today, but I definitely felt the weight of my bag. When we arrived at Dingbuche, I stretched out in the sun a bit, which was lovely but earned me a slight sunburn on the face. Kempy washed his T-shirt in some ‘warm’ water, which we both presume meant ‘not frozen’. Lunch prompted me to have a snooze while Ryan started another book on my Kindle. Oh, and we finally slaughtered a metwurst and some gummi-bears. Made for a nice snack and I felt significantly re-energized.
