Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp 2013

Date: November 19, Tuesday.
Location: Namche for lunch. Monjo for sleeping for the night.

We started the day by visiting the local gompa or monastery. Very old. The highlight was when they unlocked the cabinet and we saw a Yeti skull!

Next we visited Kami's 400 year old house compete with his temple ( in the picture). His house is very traditional ad his family has lived there for hundreds of years.

Now we go down, down down.

Thanks for the info on the football, games. Only news we are getting here is about the national elections. Interesting as people line up to vote on paper ballots and all transportation is grounded for the day. Does not effect us.

Melissa, Hope you are feeling fine and having a wonderful time. Our big adventure of the day was climbing Bristol in some snow. Not real snow. They have been testing the snow guns. Maybe hike it with you after Thanksgiving!

Hi Mom, Sounds like you are seeing some incredible sights and meeting great people. We are on our way to Columbia with both boys in tow. We had to leave at 6:30am to get into NYC by 9am. Poor doc won't know what hit him when my whole crew walks in! Garret has decided that Bhutan is his favorite sovereign nation because they measure their economy with by the GNH, the gross national happiness. Anyway, enjoy your last few days in Nepal! Love you! -Bianca

Well since Ruchi told you my sad news (yes the Pats lost aka the game was stolen from them!) to make myself feel better I scored some Monday night football tix for next week! And sounds like you all have had an amazing couple of days. It's crazy that in the land of yetis, yaks and monks you're posting to Facebook! Someone recorded that chants? Can't wait to read more.

Thank you so much for the pen, it is a very thoughtful gift that will be put to good use. My favorite gifts have always been those that are unique and individualistic because something made by hand is the culmination of hard work and effort, in contrast to run of the mill items everyone else owns. Thank you again and I am glad to see that you are on your way back down. Mike
