Not in Cansas anymore Toto
Have we reverted to the 80s and a game of Where in the World is Carmen San Diego? No. This is waiting for first flight out to Lukla, the town at the footstep of our trek towards Everest Base Camp. Over the next ten days our little band of four (my dad, brother, cousin and I) plus guides and porters are SO EXCITED and a little nervous to encounter the world’s most majestic (in many sense of the word) mountains. Having spent three months living and working in India in 2006 I am no stranger to the chaos of this culture, but I am already astounded by how much I have changed in the interval between visits. The posters, greetings, advertising, writings on temples are all very recognisable to me now – more thanks to my years in yoga classes and study than anything else! I have a lot of thinking and walking to do in the next ten days and here is only a tiny nibble of the images and thoughts to come… bon appetite!
