Today (Sunday) we say goodbye to our rural homestay families in Sittong and begin our 2 day trek towards Darjeeling. We will climb up into the hilltops that have been surrounding us for the past week and spend two nights in lodges along our trekking route. On Tuesday morning we will take Jeeps the rest of the way into Darjeeling where we will have the day to rest, shower, and explore. Then on Wednesday morning we will move towards Mirik for transference and the final few days of our course.
We are all sad to say goodbye to our families and Sittong but looking forward to spending time together as a group. Last night we played soccer with a few members of the community. It has rained most of the previous day so things were a bit muddy 🙂
