I am sorry for my cryptic title, but I simply like math and numbers. Let me explain; before I even started my journey I already had 120 minutes delay as my flight got rescheduled from 3.30 to 5.30.
I must admit that Air Arabia impressed by sending a notification ahead of time, so I was able to use the time with my friend Adib. Less funny was that they then tried to deny me on board because they were overbooked. With some hard core Dutch persuasion power, however, I managed not only to get on board but to also have a 3-seat-row for myself.
I landed at 11 am KTM time, suprisingly rested. First thing I did was striving to be a ‘good daughter’; I had promised my mom that I would be pretty much reachable at any given time so my first action had to be to purchase a local data bundle. Then, well then it was time for action 2; doing the supreme thing after having arrived in Nepal: I went for Momo’s.
Momo’s are the local delicacy, pretty similar to Japanese Gyozo or Chinese dumplings. We learned about Momo’s when we were with a Trekkup group in Nepal for a horse riding expedition last year. My below picture made several Dubaian people instantly jealous and hungry, right, JP and Claire?.
Oh, on a closing note. I decided to include the Laboche peak in my hike after Everest Basecamp. The guide is good and the team seems very sensible and fun, so we will probably have a blast togther. As a result, I spent almost my full afternoon buying exorbitantly expensive extra gear such as socks and gloves and other attire that will remain warm in -30 degrees instead of visiting world heritage sites. Grrr and brr
