Annapurna - The Mighty Massif

A solo odyssey to the Kingdom of Nepal. My first trip there, at the end of the hippie era in Kathmandu. The appropriately-named Freak Street was the hippie's communal area of choice before Thamel caved in to the backpacker brigade. A 60 cents a day lodge in Freak Street was where I set up base as I trekked solo to see the mighty Annapurna massif and rafted along the Trisuli River. I had five times more dal bhat than I showered on this month-long odyssey, and made many lifelong friends from all over the world.
