We started today with an amazing birthday flight to Everest! Flying along the mountain ranges, our faces glued to the window and at times, even in the cockpit – something quite rare nowdays… It really gives you a perspective on how huge and beautiful it all is.

Back in Kathmandu we visited three of the largest holy places in Nepal, observed traditional cremation ceremonies and pilgrims prostrating themselves for a better future life. The chaos and pollution seem so insignificant in the scheme of things!
