Category: Sense of Place


Photo and caption by Marianne Mills

Arriving after a four day steep ascent, days filled with mountainous plates of dhal bat, bowls of garlic soup and ginger tea to stave off the altitude sickness, and with conditions ranging from monsoonal humidity and torrential rain to the silent, icy, breathless moment of reaching ABC, I had to laugh (between trying to breathe) at the thought of launching into a game. ABC sits cradled amongst the majestic peaks of the Annapurna range at 4130m. Mind you, by day two I would have been ready..

Location: Annapurna Base Camp (ABC), Nepal
