Hot showers and everything

We’re back in Kathmandu and boy does it feel good. The air is thick, hills are no longer a problem, appetites are back with a vengeance and there is hot running water. We had a great last night at basecamp. There were emotional speeches, large quantities of champagne and entertainment from a fantastic Elvis impersonator along with help from our Sybs! Elvis rocked and we all rolled, so by the morning there were some seriously weary looking people. Two days driving back to Kathmandu soon sorted us out though and we now have the pleasure of the Hotel Tibet while we wait for the next flights outta here. Not long now…

I just wanted to thank you for doing such an awesome job at keeping us all informed as to everyone's progress, health, safety and demeanor....I very much enjoyed reading your journal entries. You are a great story-teller!....looking forward to when the project is completed and aired.

Hi Barney

You are an absolute star - I can't tell you how fantastic it has been that you have kept us all in touch with what's been going on up there. It has been wonderful to get your updates. Every entry has been thoughtfully and carefully written - and allowed us to feel close to the people we love when we haven't been able to speak to them for days on end.

Thank you
Amanda
