With uneasy feelings, I began my trip with 12 people, two jeeps, an eight-hour drive to the start of the trek, three of which constituted being stuck in Nepal traffic. Everything started to get a new meaning.
When we arrived to the first campsite, it was already late at night. Still a little bit bitter, and consumed by contemplation of my major “issues for the trek” and all the logistics, I went to bed under the stars. I greeted the warm and humid night air recalling that it would change shortly.
