  1. It's cheers among trekkers at dinner time to encourage all to face more hazardous journey ahead-That's real touching scene. The rest house's toilet is attractive? How about the facility inside, and cleanliness etc? Potted flowers are colorful and large, must be work of weather. Korean mother and daughter team are sporting people, esp. the good looking mother. Sigh... wish to meet her in person.
