Eben reports that the team survived their drive from Jomsom to Pohkara. Sounds like a classic Nepal bus ride—bumpy and hairaising at times! The team had a good dinner in Pohkara and enjoyed a beautiful sunset, but the day was not over. There was a “bandh” (strike) scheduled for tomorrow, which would cause more disruptions to travel, so the team decided to keep pushing on, and continued the drive to Kathmandu (on better roads) where they have now safely arrived.
Good job, gang. Sounds like a real adventure!
