  • 9 hour jeep ride up to the Tablejung... where the road ends and the mountains begin.  Driving in Nepal means playing chicken with every oncoming car.  The driver is on the right honked 4 times at every car,  but that's how you drive on these crazy small roads.
  • Do you see the red dot on my cashmere sweater?  Seinfeld 😄
  • Chilling for the night in hotel in Birtamod.  Door to the bathroom is only 5 foot.
