Namche Bazaar
Jessica in Namche
   She doesn't like the cold much...
Tibetan Camp in Namche
   These guys come in from Tibet with their yaks full of merchandise from China. In another hour or two they'll unpack all their stuff and start selling.

   Notice the trees on the right. These are protected by the army. Otherwise they'll turn into firewood.

   We went on a 'test hike' this morning to test ourselves at altitude. You can almost make out the sign for Gokyo and Tengboche that we took the next day.

A Rock and Some Flowers
   Jessica really liked these flowers. We don't know what the common name is.
Trail to the 5 Star Lodge
   $100 per person for this place. Supposed to be nice. Has a great view of Everest.

Another Farm Shot
   Probably close to Lukla
Prem & JDS
   Pretty close to Lukla
A cute little bridge
   This bridge is between Lukla and Pakhding. On the way back the bridge was completely out.
Pretty fancy Lodges
   Some of the lodges look really great from the outside and aren't really that bad on the inside. They're not as fancy as they might look though.. Between Lukla and Pakhding.
   Don't know.
Prem & Jds again
Jds hanging around our Lodge in Pakhding
   We waited a long time for our animals to show up. The animals had the tents and some of the gear for the kitchen.
Getting loaded in Pakhding
   Poor animals... Those bags are heavy!
The River valley between Pakhding and Namche
   Sure is pretty, but the water is always white...
Perty Flowers
A rest on the way to Namche.
   One should be able to see Everest, but..
Our first glimpse of Everest
   Poor Jessica. Looks so tired.

Animals on the Bridge
   This suspension bridge was really high. We had to climb up and down a fair bit on both sides to use this bridge.
