Having Farewell Dinner at Bhojan Griha
Having Farewell Dinner at Bhojan Griha
November 2, 2015 - Fly to Kathmandu

With an 8:00 AM breakfast time, it was a morning with an opportunity to sleep in a bit for those who wanted.  The guys were all out before that though either shopping for ordered items, birding or taking pictures of the mist rising over lake Phewa, revealing the peaks in the distance.  After breakfast was an opportunity for some shopping before heading to the airport around 10:30.  A short flight to Khatmandu gave us our last view of the mountains.  Pasaang Sherpa was there to greet us and soon we were back at the Holy Himalaya Hotel, where we checked in and freshened up before having lunch at the Gaia Restaurant where we enjoyed fresh salads and sandwiches.  The afternoon provided time for more shopping, roaming the streets that were much busier than last time in town.  It seems that many people have returned from their homes after the festival. We met with Peak Promotions personnel at 6:00 PM and they took us across town to Bhojan Griha for a traditional Nepalese evening of a multi course meal with music and traditional dancers while we were seated on ground level chairs (a challenge for some of our trek weary legs).  Phula was presented with a t-shirt we had made up sporting the superman logo texted with "Super Phula", which he proudly modeled.  We were also presented with some reminders of our wonderful time in Nepal.  A lovely evening with some emotional good-byes brought our adventure closer to its conclusion.  One more night, a little more exploring tomorrow then we will head out tomorrow evening on our return home, leaving a little of our hearts in Nepal.
