Chad and I have been making good use of are time while we wait for the ministry of tourism and the banks to open so we can get are permits and hit the trail. The most important thing at this point in the expedition is staying healthy. For me that means eating well, wearing my dust mask in the streets, drinking lots of water, hand washing and getting lots of exercise.
A chance encounter with friends. L to R Chad, Jiban Ghimire, Lapka Rita Sherpa.
