It all starts the previous day. Read about it here.
Forgetting my packed lunch on the very first day was far from ideal, it was catastrophic and an omen of things to come. Before getting chewed out by the TL, right on the first day, I ran up 2 flight of stairs and huffed back, sneaking into the cab before he realised.
We were dropped off near Dhak where we were to start the trek.
Before long, we found better trails, passing through villages and facing Po's old enemy, STAIRS!
Of course, the view kept us distracted, but our legs did complain. And we stopped everywhere, some to sip some water, some to get clicking. Like these wonderful, brightly painted houses.
