The hike to Dole went faster than we thought it would and thankfully so because John was experiencing some serious "colon blow" as he put it! After we made it to Dole John shared his appreciation for his sphincter because he made it without an "accident." BTW intestinal issues when traveling in countries like Nepal are common.
We spent a wonderful night with our new friends Ivan (originally from Macedonia) and Nawany (originally from Nepal) who now both live in the United States. We had a blast "chewing the fat" last night.
