Pitstop in Chame

We have reached Chame, the first place with internet access. Actually I didn't think there would be any place with online access, I didn't even think there would be electricity in most places. But it seems every little village has it's own little hydro power supply station.

We have taken it easy and are feeling very well, now that Helena is over her bacterial or amoebic dysentery infection which she brought with her from Kathmandu! There is a health station in every two/three villages and we went to see the 'doctor' who had the right kinds of antibiotics.

In two more days we will reach Manang and from there it's two days to the pass, but we have to plan for days of acclimatisation to the heights.

There are some hot springs here which we will take a look at and perhaps jump in. The weather has been getting colder and colder with overcast the last two days, but today the sun is out and illuminating the Annapurna II peak. Food is good but getting more and more expensive, but it's still off season, so rooms are cheap. We meet max other 6 trekkers per day.

Take care!
