*sigh* ... Holidays…
Well it's been about 6 months since we returned from our trip to Nepal, I've been seeing so many people on facebook are heading off on adventures overseas and it was making me feel a little blue so I decided to have a flick through some of our photos from the trip and I came across these ones. These are actually shots Steve took (I was tucked up in bed feeling very sorry for myself with a nasty cough) after we arrived in Khumjung, a little village at about 3790m.
The first few shots were taken at the Sir Edmund Hillary School, as we trekked into the village we could see all the kids sitting out in the sun (too cold in the classroom that time of year). After a bite to eat the boys in our tour group headed down to play soccer with the kids - I'm pretty sure the kids won - running around at that altitude is pretty tough! I thought this first image was quite amazing, those huge mountains (especially when you think that this is already 3.7km above sea level) with the kids playing soccer in the foreground. Compared to our lives in Australia it is just so incredible to think people live out there, some how I don't think Mt Coot-tha quite compares... which stands at a mega 287m
The last few photos are of the tea house we stayed at as the fog rolled in... whenever we approached the tea house (which always seemed to be up hill!) the questions of, 'will there be a western toilet' and 'please let there be something different on the menu' was always spoken - one thing we never had to ask and was always guaranteed... the view out of our window!
