Took our time getting reading and saying goodbye to Dowa, Mingma, Ongmo and the rest of the family.IMG_7369 Gave the girls 20NPR each to buy some more bubblegum after they spent all of yesterday blowing bubbles from the same piece!! Started walking back down, bumping into a lady who we had met in Dingboche and we recommended Lake Side Lodge to anyone who would listen!!! IMG_6924IMG_6930IMG_6952Stopped in Machhermo for a hot drink (in the same lodge we stayed in before – they were so glad to see us return that they gave us a second cup of tea for free!!) before continuing to Dole. I took the big bag to give Jayne a rest and ended up falling over once and slipping several times on the trail. IMG_6937IMG_6943IMG_6948Had lunch at the same lodge we had stayed in in Dole and, again, got a second cup of tea for free!!! A slightly tough 2 hour ascent to the end of our day saw us at a tea lodge that had teddies and stuffed toys nailed to the wall… Very ‘Blair Witch Project’!!
