September 2, 2006 Our Goal, Our Dream
Good morning on September 2nd and this report is coming to you from the National Park overlook, just above the Panorama Lodge where we are staying at Namche Bazaar. Before the Sherpas woke us up with coffee in our rooms this morning, Dave Hahn ran up here and determined that in fact our goal, Everest, was in view this morning in this monsoon season when often we don’t see it from this low. He came back and told so us so right now Rob, Kit, Sean and I and a lot of the Sherpas carrying our camera gear are up here paying tribute to our goal, our dream Chomolungma. It’s a beautiful morning. Ama Dablam looks stunning as well.
Today we will be moving up valley towards Thame at the base of the Nangpa La. You will here more about that wonderful Sherpa village when we are out there. Leila is going to remain here in Namche today and move over to the Khumbu Lodge and yesterday…[lost transmission]
