As many of you may have already heard, there has been a deadly 7.8 magnitude earthquake in Nepal. Apa Sherpa and his trekking team are safe and are located in Monjo, a small village in the Khumbu region of Nepal.

They say that Kathmandu is like a Beehive on acid… I see it! I feel it! I love it!
Every sense is completely saturated with the noise, the smells, and the colors. It can be overwhelming to some. Luckily everyone in our group drank it up. We flew in to Kathmandu valley two days ago. We were able to get settled into a quaint hotel. The Mandala Boutique Hotel located in Thamel, which is the hub for people going on expeditions. Trekkers, bikers, and climbers all come to Thamel to start and end their adventures. It is full of mountaineering stores, great restaurants and people!
Our traveling thus far:
1 1/2 hour flight to LA where upon arrival we had a 7 hour lay over
LA to Tokyo- 10 1/2 hr flight
Tokyo to Singapore 6 hour flight and arriving in Singapore at 3am we had to hangout at an airport lounge for a few hours (which was awesome and equipped with much needed massage chairs) before we were able to get a shuttle to our much awaited hotel.
