As I sit here unable to sleep, safe in the comforts of my own home, my mind can’t help but go over the past week again and again. I read some of the blogs we had written, entries full of excitement for the trek ahead. The stories had hope of a grand adventure, of visiting schools along the way to basecamp. Stories of excitement and happiness.

Most of the Thame community are living in tents and under tarps, but are working hard to salvage and rebuild.
In a way it has been very fortunate that Apa was there during these difficult times to help with his home village. We are all grateful for Apa and the tremendous help he has been to the Thame community.
Apa Sherpa and Todd Winzenried are still in Thame. Apa has been meeting with community leaders and devising a plan to rebuild the village, community centers, schools and homes.
