Pokhara!

According to a friend, I fell of the face of the earth for awhile… Which technically, I did.  In the last two days I went white Nepali tea water rafting, paragliding (see, that’s where I fell *up off the face of the earth), and now I’m off to trek to the Annapurna Base Camp for 7 days!  Here are a few pictures to hold you over until I get back from the trek:

We decided to jump in to cool off – since it has been two days and none of us have gotten sick, yet, I think it was a good idea!

Then we cooled off after lunch, too.  Here’s our group that went:

Half the group ran out of that adventurous spirit and only three of us went paragliding.  The pictures just don’t do it justice (*so I took a video – of us doing a ‘spiral of death’ – unfortunately, I didn’t press the right button to record =(  so just watch an extreme paragliding video on youtube to get an idea of what we did!).

If you have never been paragliding, I highly recommend it.  We went for an hour, riding the thermals up into the clouds a few times =).  More to come in a week!  Until then, you can just picture the group of us here:
