|Annapurna from Landruk|
Last day of the trekking. We took a picture just outside the lodge with the whole group, trekkers and porters, Italians and Nepalis. It was coming to a end and I wasn't ready for it. Fortunately my thoat was better, but I had a bad cold.

But the real farwell was in Pokhara. We all got on the same bus indead, and it brought us directly to our hotel. Here we got off, while the porters remained on, as they were going to travel at night, six hours to Kathmandu and more on foot for someones. Ram Bir was going to stay with us in Pokhara, then we were flying back to Kathmandu.
Pokhara is a nice city, more tourist than Kathmandu, also smaller and less cahotic. Less traffic means less pollution, the lake is really beautiful and the main street full of shops and restaurants. It was a little shocking after so many days in the mountains... Then I was half sick and rather sad.

Anyway, after dinner I left the company and went straight to bed. It involved a solo walk at night in the barely illuminated street of Pokhara, and I thought I was a little mad but it was too late. Probably I was just very tired: Nepal is one of the less dangerous countries I have ever visited...
