Walk like a Malaysian

Some video from 2013 travels throughout (mostly) Malaysia but also Nepal and Myanmar. Sadly this camera was stolen the day before I went to the Taj Mahal, so the ultimate shot is not there. But this video does include locations in Georgetown, Malakka, Bagan, Mandalay’s Teak Bridge, and Nepal’s Thorung La. And then with a theme song like that, how can you go wrong.

Annapurna Base Camp – Day 5 Himalaya to Pokhara

I was on the trail by 6:30 and I just walked all day. The climb up from Bamboo wasn’t as hard as I’d feared.  The one up into Chomrong was worse, but after some small breather breaks I stopped at the top and scarfed a piece of apple pie.

From there, I considered stopping at the town with hot springs, but it wasn’t even noon and so on I pressed.

Hard Day at Work

Somewhat to my surprise, I was in Pokhara by 7 pm that night.  Got a room at the Kiwi guesthouse and was back in time to see the New Year’s parade the next day.

In all, I love the AC and was glad to have finally done it.  I had the time and energy and probably should have down the circuit as well, but this was a nice little coda hike to the big one in March.
