Namche Bazaar
May 28, 2007

Namaste:

Terry and I are in Nasmche Bazaar staying at the “Yeti Mountain Home”-a “luxury” hotel. “Luxury” because there is a shower in the room. $40 per night, which includes dinner. Can you believe those outrageously high prices?

The trek from Pamboche to Namche was great fun. Everything is lush and green and I trekked to the sound of waterfalls and the roaring river below. It’s great to hear the birds sing and to see the local villagers. Animals too-yesterday I even saw a dog!

Today there is a Marathon race that begins at Everest Base Camp and ends at Namsche, so we are looking forward to that.

I plan to send a longer report later today.
