Made It !!!

Namaste from the Himalaya. Safely made it across the ocean via a whopper of a 17 1/2 hour flight from LA to Bangkok sandwiched in between 2 shorter flights! Everything went smoothly and the big flight was empty so I could spread out and slept a good part of the time.

Unfortunately, my backpack did not travel so smoothly and somehow it missed one of its flights! Perhaps the draw of a night in Bangkok was just too much for it? Luckily, it will be arriving tomorrow and I was prepared for this so have enough stuff with me for a few days.....No worries there. Met up with easily with, Jody,  my wonderful traveling companion for the first part of this adventure at the Kat airport and are settled into our hostel - excited to begin our trek to Everest Base Camp on Wednesday....

The highlight of the day was flying into Kathmandu and seeing.........the magnificent, amazing, towering, powerful, compassionate, kind and awe-inspiring (enough words for ya?) Himalaya.....Everest towering above the clouds was a sight that brought tears of joy. The tears that can only come from realizing a dream and following your bliss.......try it, you'll see what i mean.

Love, light and a slower than molasses internet connection :-)
