Arrived uneventfully with
gear in Nepal yesterday. Last minute gear checks completed and will depart
tomorrow or the next day for Lukla with our team physician. Accompanying us on
our way in will be some of the guys I have worked with here and in India for
years, including John Lama, my sirdar and friend, as well as Jamling-the-cook
formerly known as big Pemba.
The surviving bacteria in my
digestive tract from Nepal in fall of 2001 apparently very happy to see some
of their cousins. Perhaps it was the bacon at the buffet in Bangkok. Not sure,
More from Namche on the way.
Best Regards, Patrick Kenny
