May 5: Pokhara

The Maoists are still causing the country to stay at a standstill. This morning the decision was made to skip the rafting down the river and staying in the camp in favor of flying to the National Park at the other end of the country. All reports are that most of the disturbance is in the cities so we are going to try to make the best of this and get out of town. Today it is a day of rest and wait. Most of the group went off for another boat ride and lunch with some staying back to just "hang out".

Tomorrow morning there is a flight and we all hope to be on it.
