Our team flew into Lukkla yesterday in great weather. We hiked to Monjo and then today onto Namche Bazaar, the famous administrative capital of the Khumbu region of Nepal. Everyone is healthy and enjoying the walk in. Tomorrow we should see Ama Dablam for the first time. We will be trekking for 5 more days before reaching Base Camp and getting to work on the hill. The sherpa grapevine says that no one has been above Camp II on Ama yet, so we are getting ready to fix up high as needed. Should be fun!
