This is Dave Hahn calling from the roof of the . . . Hotel Tibet in Kathmandu Myself and Mark Tucker flew in from Lukla early this morning, the rest of the team flew in yesterday, so we are all out of the Khumbu and everybody . . . . so we are very comfortable right now. And there doesn’t seem to be, well. . . .. there are still political problems here but the city doesn’t seem roiled up too badly right now. There are power shortages, so there are a bunch of generators running but otherwise things are pretty comfortable right now. Went out for a team dinner tonight with the gang, it was wonderful, nice and easy and good food, we’re all filling ourselves up. We still don’t’ have all our bags, they are following us down the valley and should be here in a couple of days, so we’re not really all set to get on airplanes for home yet, but close, we’re just about at the finish of the . . . . be down and out. I got together with a bunch of the other leaders and trip organizers at the ministry of tourism today for a meet about how to make Everest climbing safer and better, interesting, but also nice to see everybody there, all the trip leaders and organizer. Anyway, we are getting used to nice hot summery days and plentiful food. All very welcome. Bye for now.
