Next Day
We had planned to head up the trail to Zetra La for a while, picnic there and then turn back to Lukla to pass our time, but soon after we left I felt a bit sick and we decided to turn back. I went back to bed and read for most of the day while Irene took a look at the local gompa and did some shopping. In the afternoon Bhim came by and invited us to his house to meet his family. He has 3 kids and we were also joined by two relatives of his wife. We were offered popcorn, delicious milk tea and hot chocolate but I declined the soup due to my stomach issues. We chatted a bit and I took some pictures of the family which they were eager to inspect on the camera display.
