Viewing Post for: Everest Base Camp 2013

Date: November 20th, Thursday
Location: Kathmandu, Nepal

We have all arrived safely after a wonderful airplane flight from Lukla at 7 am. This is our last post. We will be checking the blog but not posting anymore.

Today we will be enjoying relaxing in the Tibetan area near Buddha. Here is a large stupa where in the evening many come to pray, swinging prayer wheels and chanting around the large white stupa.

Tomorrow we will visit the famous monkey temple and more of old Kathmandu. In the evening we will go visit our friend Kathy who lives on the edge of the city. Her daughter is working in the poorest areas of the city. Always an interesting visit.
