Sorry to disappoint, but this is Kathy, not Pat, writing an update. We just got off the phone and all is well in Namche Bazaar. They are going to stay an extra day or two, and Pat seems very happy about that.
He asked me to post this link on Twitter for his Canadian climbing buddy Neal, who is taking tons of photos on his iPhone and posting them there. Here's the link: https://twitter.com/nealkushwaha
There are some great photos on there!
For your entertainment, I was going to post a photo of our clean dogs, after their sudsing today, but I don't feel like figuring out know how to get my iPhone photos onto this blog post, so consider yourselves spared by my sheer laziness.
Onward and upward :)
