Having recovered from jetlag and what I feared was going to be a nasty and prolonged tummy bug I can now reflect on our Nepalese adventure! Both Hughie and I were at times amazed, appalled, delighted, disturbed, exhausted snd excited by what we saw and experienced. I was most impressed by the genial and accommodating nature of the Nepalese people; wherever we went we were greeted by cheerful Namastes especially by both men and woman carrying huge and heavy loads on their backs to-ing and fro-ing between the lodges on the trail to the Annapurna basecamp. Unfortunately I didn't get to see the Bachtapur potters working on their wheels because it was raining ,and it was the festival of Dashain  and therefore a public holiday, and even potters need a holiday!
