Journal Entry:
Got up early to finish packing and put my luggage in storage. Met the rafting group at a restaurant for breakfast, then we all piled on a bus for the six hour ride to Besisahar. When we left Katmandu it was a beautiful morning, but as we were driving it started to cloud up and look very threatening. Once the bus got there we continued a couple hours further on foot to our campsite near Khudi on the Marshyangdi River. After we finished setting up camp I went for a very cold swim then joined the rest of the group for hot rum punch and beers. The skies cleared and we got a fantastic view of the Annapurna and Manaslu mountains. After diner we continued celebrating one of the girls birthdays (and Cinquo de Mayo) with the beers and just marveled at the stars and nearly full moon, then went to bed fairly early.
