After arriving in Pokhara I check into Hotel Third Pole with the rest of my trekking mates. I've volunteered to room with a lady from Hong Kong none of us have met yet. I hope she's nice haha.
The view from the balcony of the room is wonderful. Pokhara is a town built on the banks of a giant freshwater lake, Lake Phewa. Watching the sun fade to a warm orange glow and feeling the rapidly cooling air on my skin, I feel serene for the first time since arriving in Nepal.
