  Mt. Everest 2004: Mountain Madness Expedition 2004


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.
