Friday 15th October

An unexpected text this morning - so group are still within the mobile phone network!!!!

A big and memorable day due!! The group are in a Sherpa village called Pangoma which in itself must be a fantastic experience. They will visit a local monastry where they hope to receive a blessing from the lama. I imagine the lama will bless the mountains that they hope to climb to request a safe passage and will offer prayers to everyone. Everyone also usually receives a prayer scarf that has been blessed which they will wear throughout their time on the expedition. They will continue their journey into the snowy mountains today.
