20170427_06Getting better!



20170427_11Compare Mandy and that rock – this slab of rock fell across the trail…recently. Fresh stone where it used to be attached


20170427_12Where the chunk came from above the trail.


20170427_18That’s a loooong suspension bridge! Mandy almost across.


20170427_23Another Mandy and the mountain! Beautiful.

20170427_43Happy Mandy enjoying the hot springs in Chame. The Nepalese in this area are conservative when it comes to women flesh so I made Mandy wear a shirt with her bikini (as if I can make Mandy do anything…Let’s say she consented to wear the shirt)
