April 6,2011: Off to the Airport for Everest!

And so there we were, sipping Javas and lattes in airconditioned comfort in Changi airport and being seen off by friends and loved ones. Off to Everest and 2 months of a distinct lack of the usual pampered luxuries in Singapore. Learnt a new, critical Nepalese word today.  Toilet = charpee. Hope I dont have to ask for directions for that too often. If I get sick from Kathmandu Kwickstep, that word will be mighty handy to use.

 

Me and, David Lim, two-time Everest team leader at the airport today
