Spring 2018 Everest Basecamp Trek – Khumbu Kutlets to Kathmandu Kutlets

Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

Our patience paid off this morning. We got to the airport in Lukla and waited and waited and waited some more while the clouds decided what to do. Finally, during a small window of some visibility, our plane took off and 40 somewhat bumpy minutes later we landed in Kathmandu.

Still sizzling, the Kutlets quickly refreshed themselves before heading out to do some shopping and exploring.

We had dinner together (no cutlets!) and, after some more libations and reminiscencing, called it a night.

All is well with the Kutlets.
