some trekking pictures

Everest Base Camp

Lunch (most days) – p.b. and honey on a chapati

The beautiful Cho Oyu (over 8000m!)

The beautiful Gokyo valley (on our way down to Namche)

These pictures are thanks to Katherine (as my camera battery died early in our trek) – thanks K!!!

Life  continues to be good here in Kathmandu — from early morning runs to Korean donut shops with wifi to $5 massages to making plans (not ready to make them concrete….)

take care friends — much love — aurora

    Hi Aurora! These pictures are so amazing! This looks so cool! I hope you aren’t getting to cold…there is so much snow! It looks so beautiful there. Did you really get that close to a yak?!
    Hope you are having a fun and adventurous time 🙂
    Love, Ella (your cousin)
    ps. 5 dollar massages sound nice to me 🙂

    • Ella!
      great to hear from you!
      it was kind of cold there — but not as cold as it looks….
      it got REALLY hot in the sun!!!!
      like REALLT hot!!

      and yes, we (meaning my friend Katherine – not me!) got close to the yak — i was a little scared of them…. they are HUGE!
      glad you are reading it….
      and yes — the massage was great….

    Look at you! Look at you! You were here and now you’re there… such an inspiration. Did your world just open up or what?

    • oh, it was so amazing out there! each day, I think I see something that rocks my world just a little bit… shakes my foundation — but all in a good way! I the other day — i had the realization –” I’m not working – I’m doing it, following my dream – traveling! how great is this?!’
