Day 40: May 5
This is Sarah Henley
reporting from Everest Base Camp. I got word from Casey Henley, guide, about
the second Everest Base Camp trek. The trekking group consists of Anne Music
(Dallas Texas), Warren McInteer (American living in Scotland), Ricardo and
Giuliano DeMarchi (father and son from Brazil).
The trek has gone well so far
and the weather is getting better! The clients enjoyed dining and shopping in
Thamel and going for a city tour of the various Hindu and Buddhist religious
sites, in Kathmandu. The flight in to Lukla was exciting with a major air
turbulence "bump" that had everyone 1 or 2 feet in the air out of their
seats! Yikes. A few other passengers didn't keep their breakfast down! May
3rd was a rest day in Namche and the group hiked above the town to get the
famous first views of Everest, Lhotse and Ama Dablam. Everyone is feeling
great and having a fantastic time. During their stay, in Namche, they will
also visit the sherpa museum. After that it will take them another week or so
to get to base camp, arriving on May 10th.
