Here is another quick interim post to keep you up to date on our progress.
We arrived in Manang yesterday afternoon and have been enjoying a rest day with improving weather. Manang is the largest town in the east-west valley just north of Annapurna, and now that we’re getting at least some sunshine, we’re getting some nice mountain views.
We’re both in good health, though I had a spot of diarrhea this morning. Cipro seems to have taken care of that, so it’s all under control.
We leave tomorrow for the 5400-meter pass that we have to cross to get to Jomsom. We had some concerns about the snow that fell earlier in the week, but it seems people are getting across now that the weather is improving. We’ll make our next posting when we get to Jomsom in about four or five days.
