Hello there friends, family, and loved ones, this is Bhutan Trekkers calling in from our fifth camp. We’re in a little town, a beautiful village known as Chebisa. And Chebisa is known for it’s yak tongue hors d’oeuvre; yup, it’s known for serving yak tongue. Anyway, that’s where they get the name from.
And we had a beautiful hike through a gorgeous valley today. Stopped in nice little villages, this is our second one for today, very quaint, very beautiful farm towns; maybe only fifty to a hundred people live in these villages…(transmission cuts out briefly) beautiful it is. It’s so beautiful! They’re actually making hay today while there’s sunshine: cutting down the wheat, and loading up all the buggies, and taking it to the barns, and loading the barns. The barns have lots of cats in them, ’cause they also probably have some mice. But great to see village life; people filling up water jugs at the fountain at the middle of the village, beautiful painted structures with shake roofs that have rocks on the top because they don’t have nails to hold the shingles on.
Anyway, everybody on the team is doing real well. We just finished a great meal and now we’re heading for bed. We’re at 3,840 meters above sea level. We’ve been, walked only about five hours today. Tomorrow we have a big pass. So stay tuned to find out how it goes tomorrow and ta ta for now from Bhutan!
