This is Loretta. I am back in Kathmandu. I trekked out 40 miles in 3 days. A couple of things that made an impression while being gone is 1. I did not see or hear any cars for three weeks. Everything is supplied by porters or yaks (lower elevation animals are called sows or naks). 2. Base camp is so quiet at night. The only thing that you can hear is your neighbor snoring, maybe a rock avalanche in the distance, or every now and then the ice creaks like when you drop an ice cube into liquid. 3. The big dipper was completely upside down. 4. It is much easier peeing into a pee bottle than to go to the bathroom.
It was an adventure of a lifetime and I am so glad that I got to share it with my husband. Loretta
