Well we made it to the mountains and the tea fields, and it is beautiful and cold, which is perfect. We are headed to Nepal on Monday and we’re going to do the Annapurna circuit, a trek that reaches up to 17,000 feet. Yes I know don’t tell me, we are a little crazy, however we’re going and we’re determined. It should take anywhere from 14 to 21 days depending on how many side trips we decide to do. We will be staying in guest houses that stretch across the country side. We head first to Pokhara to gear up, we should arrive monday night or tuesday morning. After Nepal we are uncertain of where our time should take us. We will fly into Bangkok from Katmandu and then we are debating whether to head to Indonesia or Northern Thailand and Laos. We want to make the most of our time and if God has anything for us we want to be sensitive to that so pray that we would have some direction if we need it.
Other than that things are going pretty well, we have been redefining some of our group dynamics, mostly we want to get the most out of all of our relationships together as we travel. Sometimes I think expectations can be higher when traveling but maybe not realistic. Our time in Northern India has been symbolic of that, we have been surrounded by the highest mountains in the world for over a week now and today was the first time the fog cleared enough to see them, the moments of splendor are always few no matter where or what your doing. I think this translates to our community as well, whether its family, church, friends or traveling companions. It is good though, it keeps us looking…..more pictures coming.
