Sarah outside Hotel Shanker - KathmanduAfter 24 hours of flights and managing excess luggage I am now in the magical chaos of Kathmandu. After a very smooth passage through Nepal customs (the guy on the first security screening machine was busy chatting to someone. And there was a power cut at the second machine. So I think the scanning process was pretty much smoke and mirrors).
I then met up with one of my guides "young Mike". It turns out that both of the guides are called Mike. Which I think is very well organized of them. I am gradually meeting the climbing team which consists of 8 blokes and me! I'll introduce them properly later.
We then traveled through the wonderful craziness of the narrow streets packed with vans, tooting cars, dogs, cows and people. And piles of rubbish- apparently the rubbish collectors have been on strike for some time.
So I am now at the Shanker Hotel which has a rich tradition of climbing expeditions that have passed this way over the years.
Tonight we are thrown straight into checking and packing our base camp gear that will be sent ahead of us by jeep. So not too much time to be a tourist.
Will be in touch as things progress. Watch my progress and get updates by going to this link.
Wishing you a life if inspiration and adventure.
