Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
First we had to drop down the Bote Kosi river gorge and cross the trusty bridge. Raging white water has carved the river rocks into stylish sculptures. Climbing back up the other side was a real workout.
Most of the nuns of the Thamo nunnery escaped from Tibet. Their new Gompa is almost complete (pictured below).
After a yummy lunch, we paid a visit to the Hillary School. There is still strong respect here for Sir Edmund because all of the schools, medical clinics, and airport runways he help build through out the Khumbu Valley.
The team is doing real well with no real symptoms of altitude sickness. So we shall move on to Tangboche Monastery in the early morning.
All our best,Carole and Vern Tejas
