Nepal October 17 2013

 Here to guide Labouche Peak and then Ama Dablam, this image above shows Ama Dablam,  recent bad weather has brought snow down to 4000 m, we hope it clears up soon! Team Ascent Ama Dablam Expedition 2013 members are. Sandy Allan (leader) Toni, Ueli, Stephen, Corrina, Matt and Mike... All are doing fine to date, (evening of 17th October today). We are about to spend our third night in Namche Bazaar and then continue our trek up  towards Everest base camp  tomorrow. Bad weather in Kathmandu prevented the fixed wing planes from flying  fly so we took the expensive option of a helicopter. The weather was really terrible but our NZ pilot Jason was calm and ace and we had an exciting, scary and wonderful flight to Lukla, walked to Phakting that night having all purchased umbrellas. The following day we walked to Kathmandu. One members luggage got lost in transit and of course as fate would have it it contained all his climbing gear, but we have manged to trace it down the holdall and  it arrived here in Namche Bazaar late this afternoon by express porter!
 Prayer beads.
Seeing all!
