Long and tiring but not as bad as I though as I was able to sleep well on the long We flew on a new jet called the A which I guess it's also called the super jumbo jet. It has two complete levels of seats. Economy is all in the lower level. The seats were more comfortable than older planes and since the whole flight was in the dark I got some good sleep! It was a rough two weeks with too much to do.
I wasn't able to start earlier because I traveled to Argentina to guide the Andes Survivors trip and then to Mexico to guide a third volcanoes expedition this season. A trip to Sweden and a quick trip to San Diego with my band to play a very fun and special wedding! I had really intense days where it looked like I would have no way to make the payments but as if this was "meant to be" all the online adult dating chat guadix came through with incredible donations and my brother Horacio bailed me out with a huge loan that I needed, to have enough money in the bank so that my rent and utilities would be paid while I was gone for two months!
Now, 5 days after I left, Dundee free chatrooms am finally relaxed and feeling great, healthy, and focused on enjoying and performing at my best on this Everest expedition! I was sitting on the window and the two seats next to me were open. Finally at the end of the boarding process a young, attractive Nepali girl sat next to the aisle.
As I moved a few things around to make room for her to use the middle seat for her stuff she asked me in broken English if she could sit next to me I said She sat there the whole 6. Chat in houston I wouldn't have a problem with a young pretty girl wanting to sit next to me, but she had almost lost her voice and had a rewardstyle conference dry cough going and all I could think of was: "the last thing I need just before Everest is a nasty virus!
But she was really friendly the whole flight giving me her peanuts, her ice cream dessert from her dinner and I swear, almost treating me as if she was the host and I was her guest! Helping me free private chats the food tray, moving things around so I would be more comfortable, and all sorts of nice gestures!
She was so sweet and nice that I couldn't do anything! What could I do? Say, "hmm, can you move over? But there really weren't that many options! She chatroom bendigo free very sweet but it was quite strange. She wished me good luck on Everest. I helped her with her heavy carry on and in immigration we went our separate ways. Kind of a strange odd little story isn't it?
She was 23 years old flying to Nepal to see her family and friends for a few weeks after 3 years of working in Korea without a chance videochat en vivo visit. She gave me her in case I needed anything while in Nepal! It was an awfully friendly welcome to Nepal and I still don't quite get it Who can afford Everest?! But I did explain to her that I was a musician and guide and that I was lucky to receive most of the cost of Everest in crossdresser chat roulette So far I have found people here very friendly not as much as her but very nice everywhere.
April 5, We are at Namche. Internet here is practically useless!
It works for a minute and then it stops! I'm hoping I can send this message in one of those lucky moments! I am doing what I can between a local phone I bought, my iPhone and my iPad!
Namche is the main trading city of the Sherpa people in Nepal. It is a town built on the side of a steep hill with no ro and the only way of getting here or transporting goods to and from here is by foot and by pack animals, or helicopter top phone chat lines this is extremely expensive so the locals use it moderately I have a cold today, I woke up with a sore throat and coughing a bit.
I feel ok right now and luckily we have an acclimatization day here today so I am resting a lot and staying well hydrated. I am hoping I get this over before we get too high. We still have about 7 days before we get to base camp at 17,' Getting sick is common in these expeditions as you travel across the world in crowded planes, you see tons of people in the crowded and very narrow streets of Kathmandu and there are lots of trekkers on the trail from different parts of the world. Once we reach base how to be fun to talk to we are more isolated as Trekkers are no longer allowed inside Everest base camp.
Also our base camp will be a closed camp with no visitors allowed from other camps so we don't introduce outside viruses into our team.
For our next couple of days we climb to 12,' and then to14,' so we are not that high yet and hopefully I can get this cold over quickly. Namche is fascinating, colorful and it boasts amazing views of peaks above 20,' The cobblestone walkways have stores, lodges and restaurants and erotic chat hannover see a mix of trekkers, climbers, and pack animals walking on them.
No yaks yet, because Yaks live above 14k and they cannot come lower because they can overheat and die. Sex chats for texas don't see those Porters as they left a day before us. Also our Sherpas are already at base camp establishing our camp.
The porters are carrying an average of almost a ton of gear, supplies and food per each one of us climbers! And that is not including the personal gear we are carrying about lbs for each of us for our 10 day trek. Talk chat lines free are live chat girls using Sherpas for our trek as trekkers do since we can carry these medium lo ourselves without a problem and it means we have our stuff with us at all times, which is very practical.
Also this bit of exercise is good to stay in shape and to aid in acclimatization. Looking forward to getting over this cold and getting to the mountain! Though I am really enjoying this beautiful and culturally fascinating trek trough the mountains of the Himalaya! I'll on line chat rooms in touch as soon as I can! Feverish all day, weak and cold!

I was able to stay warm with my 0 F sleeping bag, but every time I got up to go to the bathroom I would freeze! Namche free phone sex chat toulouse be a cold place. Of course, nothing compared to what's coming for us!
I slept a lot yesterday and I slept a lot last night. This morning I still felt feverish and very weak when we started. I took some pain killers and started feeling better after we finished the initial big hill and the trail flattened at about 11,'. The views are incredible.
