The Real Walking Starts
(day 4 - to Namche Bazaar)
Dom had recommended that we leap out of our sleeping bag as soon as we got our wake-up knock, and although I worked really hard to, Rosie succumbed to the temptation of warmth. The mid-night long walk to the loo at the end of the long cold corridor didn't help either of us in catching up on the sleep we so badly needed to fuel today's walk.
After a large breakfast of porridge and toast and eggs (to become habitual) we set out along the stunning Dudh Kosi river in bright sunshine. We crossed rope bridges (Rosie's fav) and passed beautiful stupas - remembering to walk past on the left, for Buddhist merits.
We staggered into Namche just after lunch. Nestled in the hillside, it is a bustling market and tourist town in the season. We were ecstatic to find it has a lovely tea house with hot showers, en suite loos and electric blankets to keep the freezing fog out of our bones.
