Lukla - we were lucky to get out!


The weather has been overcast in Lukla the past few days and many groups have been stuck there (or stuck in Kathmandu.).

We were lucky to be with Mingma and to fly out on the first flight of the day. 

I am now the last member of the team in Nepal and am leaving today, thanks to everyone on the trip for making the expedition such a great success!

Namaste, Angus

Last view of Everest, day 12

On our last full day of trekking, we were treated to our final view of Everest below Namche.

Day 12 - Double Bridges

On the last day of the trek, many of us tied ceremonial scarves (called kata) to this bridge.

Last day in Namche at Bodhnath

Namaste from Kathmandu!

We spent our last day packing, buying final souvenirs and visiting the Big Stupa.

We have had a great trip, we have journeyed well, but it is time to go home.

We will continue to post blogs en route.

Angus, Andrea, and Dr. Dave

Safely in Kathmandu!!

Dear All,

We are all now safely in Kathmandu at the Yak and yeti Hotel.

People are showering and putting on their clean "normal" clothes.

Mark Burton is heading home today with the rest of the group leaving for home tomorrow.

Tonight we will have a final celebratory dinner at the Rum Doodle restaurant.

I will send photos once we can locate a memory card reader!
