Q.) Should the bodies be left on Everest or should someone bring the bodies down from the mountain?  What do you think ?

A.) Something should be done, bring them down. Yes, Good to bring bodies down.

Q.) You have told us you have concerns about the payments made to the Sherpa climbers, tell us more...

Q.) How bad a problem?

A.) Yes, Kathmandu worst.

Q.) What could "western people" do more for the people of Nepal ? or should they stay away ?
