Phakding {2610 m.} to Namche Bazaar {3535 m.}

Monday March 19, 2007

Woke up very early {5:30}. The stars seem to be sitting on top of the mountains. Today we walked up and down mountains for 6 hrs. It was so difficult. There was a Nepalese woman about 80 yrs old walking along the same trail. I would rest and she would pass me and then she would rest and I would pass her. Finally she passed me and I would never see her again. Quite a humbling experience. I should have done more cardio. I was always looking for a reason to rest {taking a picture, sip of water or to let group of yaks pass}. I finally made it to Namche Bazaar at 1 pm and had a great lunch of yak pepper steak.
