Kathmandu, Nepal

Robert is resting and recovering at The Hyatt in Kathmandu.  He selected this hotel because it has reduced noise and pollution.  The hotel is buffered from both by extensive grounds and gardens which provide the hotel with a park like atmosphere. The hotel keeps western standards inside.  The Hyatt is an excellent place to recover and other climbers are also staying there.  I am sure after 6 weeks of solitude and gray landscape in the high mountains, the chaotic noise and brilliant colors in Kathmandu can be quite a shock to the system when one is totally healthy.  I am not surprised this is a haven of rest for Robert and others. Nepali family and friends, along with Trish from Altitude Junkies have come to the hotel to visit which has been a "healing balm" as Robert said in a text early today. A meal or two with fellow climbers and friends is also on Robert's agenda for the near future.

Tomorrow Robert will be visiting fellow climbers who have been hospitalized and also have another exam by the docs at CIWEC Hospital and Travel Medical Center.

He has an amazing story to tell but is still recovering. Robert is hopeful that he will be able to post to the blog himself in the next couple of days.

Thanks for all your thoughts & prayers,
Lincoln, NE
