Hello again from Manang!

re: the election

The local results have the Maoist winning throughout the country and specifically here in Manang. ie: we are not in harms way given their support for tourism.

re: the trek

After a few days at high altitude (ie 4600 m at Thorang Phedi) we have come back down to Manang area to care for a sick tummy (Nick), a cold (Kyla) and to avoid some snowy and cold weather above.

We will be staying in our favorite guesthouse, the New Yak in Braka, Manang for the next few days while taking in some day hikes, some yak watching and the annual archery competition.

ie: we are safe and sound and continue to enjoy our time here.
