For the first time in the couple of weeks we have been in the mountains, the weather is not glorious. It is, in fact, far from glorious. It is, in fact, tipping down with rain, and Lukla is inside a big cloud.
This is not good for several reasons. Firstly, I don’t have a chance to top up my tan. Secondly, it means no flights to Kathmandu. This is a problem, as if there are no flights to Kathmandu, we can’t be in Kathmandu to catch our flights home tomorrow.
Consequently we are
- Praying to whatever gods we can think of to get rid of the clouds
- Checking out how much replacement flights will be
- Crying into our lattes at the fake Starbucks
Last year there was a period of a week where there were no flights out of Lukla. Please not again..
