Our little team has had several fun days trekking in the Khumbu region of Nepal. We flew from Kathmandu to Lukla in a private helicopter on Sunday and then walked about four hours to our lodge in the small village of Monjo. Our only disappointment was the cloudy weather meant the solar powered hot water heater didn't work. A small price to pay for such a nice day's walk.

Everybody slept well and then we were moving again by 8 am. Staying in Monjo put us closer to the infamous Namche hill. We hiked up it quite quickly and found our rooms in the beautiful Panorama Hotel. Here we enjoyed hot showers before walking down the hill to go into the village. We had a great lunch and did a little last minute shopping. Unfortunately the weather was cloudy so we couldn't see much. We were in bed by nine after a very filling dinner.

Today we walked up to the Everest overlook and were blessed with blue skies and wonderful views. We also went to two different Sherpa museums and then hiked up a steep hill to get to Kumjung and Khunde. Here we visited the school started by Sir Edmund Hillary as well as the medical clinic he founded. Sir Ed went on to establish lots of schools and clinics in this remote mountainous region.

We are back to our hotel now and I am excited about my next hot shower! The team is strong and everyone is having a great time.
