    Kathmandu

    September 20 in Nepal ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    5:30 brekkie. Last of this stupid early shit.
    At 6 we made a move to airport next door.
    Customs checks through bags by hand and decided we were 15kg over weight ... we weren’t overweight on the way here..
    scam lol.
    It’s only $1 per kilo over but still. What BS lol.
    I added a rock but everyone else has lost weight.
    Sneaky buggers don’t removed bag from the previous group.

    Sat in airport a while watching helicopters get ready to leave.

    Currently on plane on wrong side again. Other side has the terrific views.

    We landed easily. I like little planes a bit more now lol.
    Helens bag was on next flight so Pasang stayed at the airport.
    I like Kathmandu more this time around. I’m excitedly see people and it’s so different to the mountains.
    Once at the hotel we unpacked, enjoyed the shower, flushing toilet and returned our hired items. (Poles, sleeping bag, down jackets and mattress things.) very sad to say bye to my poles.

    We went out to kfc. Amazing. 😭 it’s different but oh so satisfying. How I have missed meat.

    We went back to the hotel and lounged about until 7 when we were all meant to be going out for pizza only Helen and Tom bailed cause they didn’t want to go with Lucy but then Lucy bailed herself cause she is claiming her knee is sooooo bad she can’t walk. George was listening in on her convo with Kay and it sounded like she was trying to get a free trip out of this whole thing. He is furious.
    So pizza ended up being me, Will, Anita, George, Kay, Dawa, Pasang and another Ian Taylor guide dude.
    The place we went to was lovely! It’s called fire and Ice and It was great! Great vibe, great layout, great food!
    Dawa paid for everyone’s drinks and food. 😍
    We had good conversations and 1000 dad jokes from George.
    I had a lovely evening.
    We got given presents - we got a green scarf - similar to the white sash we got upon arrival. Whites for welcome, green is for goodbye.
    We got a mug with our picture on it, a cd of sherpa music feat Pasang and a certificate. I’m annoyed over my certificate though because it says I went up Kala Pattar when I didnt. Can’t put it on the wall. FRAUD lol.
    We said our goodbyes to Pasang at the hotel. Very sad. Glad Helen wasn’t there cause she would have cried and that would have set me off 😅
    Pasang leaves tomorrow to do it all over again with another team.

    We met a few of the other team earlier in the day and one of them recognized Lucy and was all I’m a big fan.
    I reckon her head nearly exploded off her neck.
    Anita was surprised ... bloody Anita 🤦🏼‍♀️
    It’s like she though Lucy was joking this whole time?? Beautiful woman. So. Stupid. 😂
