Namaste friends, family and loved ones!
We walked to the venerable Hillary School on our way out of Kumjung. Hillary was so grateful for the Sherpa support of the first climb of Everest that he spent the rest of his life giving back to the Sherpa people. His first was this very school. And the people here revere him to this day.
We were blessed with a sighting of a flock of female pheasants grazing in the bush. And we got another delicious view of Lhotse and Everest from the monastery. Monastery guard lions are fierce!
All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
