After a spot of early morning shopping in Namche Bazaar, today was the last day of steady trekking. They left Namche Bazaar and on down to Lukla,; crossing 2 suspension bridges along the way.
I spoke with Asti in the evening after she'd arrived in Lukla (although we exchanged text messages earlier in the day while she rested on a cigarette break). She was exhausted, it was raining, and she was waiting for some people to meet up with her and go to dinner.
Tomorrow morning, assuming the weather cooperates and there's a clear window, Asti's flight will take her from Lukla airport back to Kathmandu.
