Hi everyone it’s Margaret here.
Now at Monjo
We have arrived at Monjo which is 2750 metres and are staying in one of the lodges – twin rooms with an ensuite!! We were up very early this morning in order to be at the airport to catch a flight to Lukla at 6.00am. The flight was only 30 minutes but it was certainly spectacular and the landing was incredible. After a cup of tea the porters headed off with our gear and we followed soon after with our guides.
Starting the Trek
The walk to Monjo was fantastic – the landscape, people, the quietness, yaks walking past us, vegetation, everything as well as the weather being perfect. I managed the walk very well (even the bridges) and we are resting now in preparation for our trek to Namchee tomorrow.
Last night we dined at RumDoodle – the restaurant where Fiona signed her name and can now eat there for free for life (although it’s a long way to come most weekends!). Beck is much better and is improving all the time. The group is great and we have all bonded together with Cas as our surrogate husband!!! (He is telling everyong that he has 6 wives but that he is long on Australian and hopes to swap a couple further up the track to balance his portfolio!) We are having lots of laughs and are all so supportive of each other. We are looking forward to Namchee where we will stay for 2 nights.
Cheers for now and love and best wishes Marg
Hi it’s Cas here –
Just wanted to say hello to my boys and Grazia. I miss you all already.The girls have kinda excepted me into their flock and I have even been allowed to say the odd word or two during the day. I will write some more soon.
Lots of love
