Hi all,

Catching up on a few days and the end of our trip in Pokhara.

We spent the remaining couple of days going to Sarangkot for sunrise and visiting the Tibetan Settlement of Tashi Palkhel. On our way back we did stop at a Monastery for young lama apprentice where I did end up spending most of the time playing football with the security guard, our taxi driver and one of the youngsters from the Monastery, it was a delight to watch the smile on the young one.

Finally, what a great surprise on our final afternoon in Pokhara when we ran into Tom and Lauren, the American couple I spoke about on our Annapurna trek, they unfortunately had to turn back on ascent day - great reunion and the opportunity for us to say bye properly and most importantly exchange contact details.
