We have had some memorable days here; visited Swayambhu (the monkey temple), Boudhanath (the big stupa), Pashupatinath (Hindu temple), done some shopping in the busy streets of Thamel, been to The Department of Tourism and got our permit (for my coming climb) and squeezed in some time with good friends. We had a lovely time with all my dogs at KAT Center (Kathmandu Animal Treatment Center http://www.katcentre.org.np) and we visited Shaheen (Local Womens Handicraft http://www.lwhnepal.com/about/) and her family and enjoyed a delicious meal at her home.
Now we have packed our bags and are ready for the flight to Lukla Sunday morning.
We are looking forward to start our adventure in the Khumbu Valley.
