This is the Stupa at Dingboche. Every village has one, or more somewhere just above the town. They are adorned with prayer flags and the eyes of Buddah watch over all. When you pass a stupa or prayer stones or any religious monument you must pass on the right even if it is more inconvenient to do so. The Buddah watches and will know.
This is the group I'm traveling with. We're on the road (trail) to Dingboche at 14 thousand feet. They're a good crew. Everyone suffers and I bring up the rear every time. Huff Puff. It is a humbling experience.
I told you about the guy carrying lumber up the steepest hill I ever hike. Well, here he is. Those are 4x4's and we figured it is about 200 pounds. I got nothing to complain about. This really is the hardest thing I've ever done but I press onward.
Namaste from Nepal,
This is one of the many suspension bridges we use to cross the Dhudkosi River. We are hundreds of feet above the river and that.s why my stomach looks so huge. It's a perspective thing. And by the end of this trek the stomach will be a thing of the past for sure.
Namaste from the Khombu valley,
Dinner in Kathmandu. This place serves everything from momos, to fajitas and spaghetti. Then we had birthday cake. Dean and Geljen Sherpa made me this cake. Ah the service you get with World Wide Trekking.
