Hi Everyone,

We made it this afternoon.  Long trip but everything went well.  I survived the plane much better

than I expected.  When we got to Kathmandu the cabs were on strike…so we had to take a bus to the

hotel.  That was unbelievable!  We were packed in…wasn’t sure I was going to make it.  But we did.

I wish I had gotten a picture…only way to realize what this was like.  Very third world fun.

We also had an adventurous cab ride from the Delhi airport. They have no lanes.  The all jockey

with each other to get position.  They literally come within inches moving at 40 MPH.

Tomorrow we go sightseeing and then prepare to leave for the mountain Wednesday.

We will have breakfast at 4 and then leave for the airport to take us to our starting point.

I found out we will be flying a 16 seater plane.  I am jockeying for front row.

I think the climb will be a piece of cake after that. (Just kidding)

Good night from Nepal!

Love, Brian, Chris, and Sandie

    Wow – I’m so glad the trip went well or at least most of it. Sandra I could just picture you on the bus!!!! But you made it. Have fun sightseeing and I look forward to the next update.

    • Thanks…I feel good today. I think I was a liitle tired last night. This is really a different experience. It is 7 AM now. I think it’s about a 10 hour difference?

      Love, Sandra

  2. I’m glad to hear things are going well. I would have paid to see you Sandra in the bus – I have
    experienced you on a crowded elevator. I’m sure deodorant was used by all! Good luck to you guys and I love you all!
    Love Karen

  3. You can do anything now! I guess you were numb after the plane and taxi rides. Good luck! I’ll keep checking up on you.
