enjoyed another peaceful day in Kathmandu whilst we prepare for our
expedition. Our food has arrived on schedule - all 1.2 tones of it! It was
delivered by rickshaw. Imagine a stream of endless rickshaws stretching down
the street as far as you can see... It's really quite comical - and that's the
scene we were confronted with at 11.00 this morning!

enjoyed a fantastic dinner at the Roadhouse Restaurant, where some members got
their first taste of spicy Nepali food! We also were happy to meet with David
Wallace from Australia and his wife Rashma. David and Rashma are old friends.
David was one of our Summitclimb Leaders. He's now retired from guiding, but
not from climbing! He still performs hard ascents here in Nepal.

members and our official expedition dinner. More news soon! Thank you for
