Everest Base Camp

"Goddess Mother of the Earth" is what the Nepalese call the mountain. And I want to see her up close and personal.

 

They say Everest Base Camp is one of the geally great treks in the world. You are surrounded by the biggest peaks in the world.


"A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly. Specialization is for insects."    — Robert A. Heinlein
