Lhotse Expedition

3rd April, 2012 - with Dale Krapf group.

First thing this morning we met with Pasang to visit his Lama.  The Sherpa’s always need to visit a Lama before leaving town for a trek or climb.  We were back to our hotel by around 8:30 AM.

Our plan was to meet the Krapf trekking group at the airport around 11 AM.  I had been working with this group for the past few months to help them set up their trip with Peak promotion.   At about 9:30 I got a call from saying that the Krapf flight was late and he would pick me up around 2 PM.   While waiting Terri and I walked over to Ram’s office to pick up the mini video camera he had offered us for our trip.  It should be fun trying to use the camera on our trip.  It can be mounted to almost anything including a helmet. 

Finally at about 2 PM Peak Promotion picked me up to go to the airport.   They finally arrived around 3 PM.  We got them loaded up and then dropped them off at the Yak and Yeti.  I walked back to our hotel and had a little more time to sort and pack.

At 6:15 Peak Promotion picked Terri and I up at our hotel for our group dinner with the Krapf group.  It was at a traditional Nepalese restaurant that included some traditional dancing and music.  Everyone seemed to have a good time and absorb some of the Nepalese culture.  We gpt back to our hotel around 9 PM and still had to finish packing for our early departure in the morning.
