Everest Trek Team Arrives in KTM

Namaste Friends, Family & Loved Ones,

Happy to report that all team members have arrived safely in Kathmandu after their long flights. We met as a group for the first time today for an orientation meeting followed by dinner at Nanglos, one of Kathmandu’s old standby Newari restaurants. We had a somewhat upscale introduction to typical Nepali food and all had a good time getting to know each other.

We are looking forward a busy day tomorrow exploring Kathmandu. Talk to you tomorrow,

Vern and Carole</p
