You may have picked up that I schedule posts (about a week) ahead of time. This allows me to enter a new country and get acclimated (financially, physically, emotionally, etc.) before sitting down at a computer.
I've fallen a bit behind, and am a few days from leaving on a 10-14 day trek in the Annapurna Sanctuary of Nepal, amongst the mighty Himalayas. Kathmandu is a trip, with daily power outages at any time, lasting an average of 4 hours. Tomorrow I take the bus west to Pokhara where I'll organize the trek. I've been told Pohkara is far quieter with scenic mountain and lake views. It also has about 8 hours of no electricity per day, and far more expensive internet access. I am currently unable to use my laptop due to some kind of problem I can't figure out with the AC connection.
So, to everyone out there who has been with me since the start, or just joined up recently, I am in a mad rush to write down all my thoughts from China AND capture the initial ones from arriving in Nepal. WOW….would be a good start for Nepal.
Please excuse any inconsistencies with layout, regularity of posts, and lack of imagery in the next few weeks.
Your travel bud,
