We left the Dole campsite after a hearty breakfast of porridge, pancakes and eggs. After a vague warning that today would be “one of the more difficult days”, we set off to the Machhermo camp. Due to some great conversation, particularly about what should be put in Doug’s future writing endeavour “19th Century Skills for 21st Century Teenagers”, the day flew by. Before we knew it, we were at camp, and had made it in a cracking 3-and-a-bit hours. We settled in for a lunch of tuna sandwiches, baked beans, vegetables and noodle soup. Tired from a busy few days, we spent the afternoon relaxing in the sun, reading and chatting in place of an afternoon walk. After afternoon tea, washy-washy and a delicious dinner, the evening was spent playing card games and having heated philosophical debates.
- Do we have to do the afternoon walk?
- Rainy, snowy and overcast in the morning, clear and sunny in the afternoon.
