Kathmandu


Arrived yesterday and have had a day's sight seeing round Kathmandu. A complete sensory overload with noises, smells and colour. Visited the Monkey Buddhist temple and then had a guided tour round Durbar Square in Thamel which you have to see to believe.

Rather tired, and hot after walking around all day. Had a medical and group briefing this am, I am group medic for the "Cuckoos" the two other groups being the "early birds'' and the ''late birds''. We have approx 23 runners in each group, most European, with a few others.

Tested out the medical kit including the altitude chamber, portable stretcher and oxygen.

We are getting up at 4 am (groan) tomorrow to leave for Lulkla, flying in small planes, weight restriction of 12k only which isn't alot!!
