May 22 – Island Peak Team Leaving Namche

Listen to Audio of Shelley's Call (.wav)

Shelley and Mingma Yangziz, one of the many new friends she made during this trip

Hi! This is Shelley calling for Berg Adventures on May 22nd from Namche Bazaar. We had a successful summit of Island Peak on May 20th... it was a great day. We made our way to Pangboche and then to Namche.

Brad after a successful summit at Island Peak is now ready to go back to KathmanduWe enjoyed checking our emails in Namche and visiting friends that we met earlier in the trip.

Tomorrow, Brad, I and Ang Temba will walk to Lukla where we will spend the night and hopefully catch an early flight the following day to Kathmandu.                        

It will be hard to leave the mountains and all the friends we made, both Brad and I had a great time trekking and climbing with Berg Adventures. The lodges, food and company have been outstanding during our time here.

We will send our next dispatch from Kathmandu, hopefully in the next couple of days. Until then we send warm wishes to everyone back home and we are all thinking of you.
