Today, I am in a such good mood that I even try to eat oats mixed with fruity tea… the truth is: it’s slightly better then plain water, slightly! haha
Between today and tomorrow we are going to do 30km, 15km each day! As usual, we are one of the last ones to leave the hut!
And finally we start our walking through beautiful green mountains…
20 minutes later we have to cross the first river of today… it is not as deep as the one we crossed yesterday, but it’s larger, and of course I go barefoot: s-l-oooo-w-l-yyy stepping on
p-a-i-n-f-u-l little stones.
The weather changes quickly, and now starts rainning, so we have to dress our rain trousers.
We cross a bridge in a little river… and later another big river with a bigger bridge and soon enough another river without any bridge!! And this river is bigger, deeper, stronger and for what they say the coldest too!
We find some of the people hiking trying to do their crossing… looking at each other, thinking of the safest way to do it.
Aaahh my dearest reader, the thing that happened next I was not expecting at all: many people start taking off their trousers!! That’s it! They adventure on icy water only in their knickers, and we can see how the water gets up high to the tights.
After watching a few crossings we adventure as well…
My feet are so sore after this!
But we made it: cold legs, but dry knickers! Haha
Back on the path, now we face a long walk on grey landscape…
We have lunch, and fat drops of rain start falling heavily!
Tonight we are not staying in the hut tho, we are camping! Again, we write our names in the security list, we pay for the camping and we are told the best spots to camp… further down the hill it’s quiet, cozy and there is a little river for washing the dishes and get some water to fill our bottles.
After a nice dinner and a hot cup of tea we all go for an evening walk to the Canyon.
My shoes are still wet so I have to use some plastic bags to isolate my feet and keep it warm and dry, it looks ridiculous but works perfectly and I am satisfied with this improvisation! 😀 haha
