Yesterday was a lazy day. Pokhara is laid back, clean and quiet and we had planned to have a late start then go off for a row around Phewa Tal, Nepal’s second largest lake; but we ended up spending most of the day trying to arrange the week we have in India, so the lake has been put on hold.

This morning we got up at 4am to watch sunrise in Sangakot, but when we got up we discovered firstly that our taxi driver hadn’t turned up, and secondly that the weather was bad so there wouldn’t be much view of the Annapurnas anyway. We went back to sleep for a few hours. Unfortunately in another bad twist of fate, Sam appears to have acquired some bug overnight (it happens from time to time due to westerner’s non-resistances) and so we’re waiting to see whether our original plans for today go ahead.

Today can only get better…
