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_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)

20170428_05Our tea house was pretty modern, although the shower kept going from burning to cold.
