Anna and Lara brought Ute out to the airport an hour ago. It really is too bad that she has to leave us. Just like in 2009, it was great to have had her along for a while. Not only is she a good friend and travel buddy, but “managing” the kids is so much easier with three adults.
Tomorrow the four of us are off to a guesthouse in the hills just north of Kathmandu and plan to do nothing but eat, sleep, drink, read and catch up on schoolwork for three days.
