The Annapurna Diaries: Day 16

  “Today doesn’t really count, neither does yesterday really. The trek has been completed but the journey carries on. I had hoped Jennifer would come to Pokhara. I’m now writing on a bus, waiting to depart Tatopani to Beni, change buses there and then head to Pokhara. This time is neither happy nor sad, although the music entering my left ear (broken right headphone) would indicate sadness....

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 15

“Done. Well done. Yet here I am staying one extra day in Tatopani. I would have had to pack my things and rush if I wanted to leave. Actually, I was indifferent, apathetic towards my destination and doings. I ate, we stayed. I also had no place to be, and I wanted to visit the hot springs. I bought a gift for my sister, ate two breakfasts, then hit the hot springs with Jennifer. Wow, what a beauty. She looked...

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 14

  “Finished. I have so many things to say. 183Km hiked/trekked, according to my mini map. But, considering the little 2km hike in Manang, the getting ‘lost’ in both Upper Pissang and Muktinath, and taking some of the more scenic secondary off-road routes, the total is probably more like 190km or 200km. Iodine pills used: 50. Liters of water drank: approx. 50. According to the map, we hiked...

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 13

“Today was a good day, mostly. I can’t stop arguing with Mark, though. Jomsom to Kokhethanti, 19km I do believe. We couldn’t quite make it to Lete, our intended destination. Off to a late start, around 8:00am I think. Mark was planning on taking the bus and Logan was considering it, although I thought it would be too expensive for him, and it was. For Mark, too. Honestly, I liked Logan, but I half...

The Annapurna Diaries: Day 12

  “Dry, rock-layered river beds have long been awaiting the monsoon. Muktinath to Jomson today. Lower Mustang. I didn’t really want to hike with the youngins but did so anyway. Not so much to my surprise, Jane was joining us. Shoot me now. I walked away from her, not for any reason of dislike but just because it was easier. We didn’t have much to talk about, obviously, and it was probably...
