I just got back from a 5 day school trekking trip, my first trip of this sort.  The weather was great for most of the trip, we were welcomed by a number of communities, and saw beautiful sites of Nepal.  I'm also happy to report that I was able to keep up with the middle of the pack of students!
Kids walking to school, many walk a long distance on rough trails to get to school

Headed back home at the end of the day


A storm rolled in bringing a lot of rain and hail - we sought shelter in a family's home (sure wished I knew some Nepali!)
