Namaste friends, family and loved ones
We awoke before dawn in hopes of catching a glimpse of Everest before the clouds came in. That didn’t pay off but we got some fine photos of Tenzing Norgay, the first to climb Everest.
After breakfast we took an acclimatization hike above town and got a great shot. We visited the environmental center and the visitors hall before getting blessed in the Gompa (traditional Buddhist temple). The Bazaar was our next stop to shop. We finished off the day with a delightfully extravagant pumpkin pie.
Everyone is doing well and in great spirits. We go up a side valley tomorrow to Thame.
All our best, Carole and Vern Tejas
