Namaste friends, family and loved ones!

We loaded up the big yellow bird early this morning. With all five of us onboard we took of for the capital city on Kathmandu. Great views!

After touch down we made our way to the hotel and endless hot water  We spent the evening eating and telling tall tales. And enjoying our favorite libations.

Tomorrow we have a free day to explore Thamel and do some shopping. Thank you for joining us on our adventure. We will soon be coming home to you!

All our best,Carole & Vern Tejas and the Klimbers
