We are officially back from our three week, 225km, trek through the Annapurna mountain range in Nepal – with some blistered feet, sore calves, and spectacular photos of the Himalayas. More on our trek to come once I have reoriented myself with my laptop…

My return to Kathmandu has been a little less than pleasant – a pretty gnarly case of Montezuma’s revenge has left me laid up. I apologize for not getting back to anyone in the last few days.

This morning I was the only one of our group of four denied an Indian Visa (apparently having the last name Khan is only cool when making Star Wars references, not when trying to cross the Indian border. Ugh.) Will be trying to remedy the situation over the next few days… during which my Nepalese Visa will expire. All in all, a crummy situation.

On the bright side… more time in Nepal means more Mo-mos! (In case you aren’t aware, mo-mo’s are pretty much the same thing as potstickers, except filled with way yummier curried veggies/potatoes/chicken/buffalo. BRILLIANT!)

The Khalerias posse has grown over the last two weeks – we are currently travelling with our friends Alex and Josh, who joined us to trek the Annapurna Circuit. We are leaving for tomorrow morning:

The Annapurna Circuit is a 21 day trek through the Himalayas in Northern Nepal. We’ll be trekking from tea house to tea house over the next three weeks, with views of some of the highest mountains in the world. The highest pass we will be taking on is 5418 meters (wish Sabeena luck with altitude sickness!)

Here are the deets:

Of course, we won’t have internet access (the cloud isn’t that cool yet) – but have no fear, I have a few posts coming while we’re gone.

Be back at the end of October! Should I be a Himalaya for Halloween?
