Our trekkers are awesome. We have decided it would better if the fun facts came from each other. It is a little more authentic and less awkward than trying to come up with facts about yourself!
The time is upon us once again. Trekking Season!
Last year I was sitting with Eric from Thule, in a Himalayan Teahouse located in Thame, Nepal. We were discussing the possibilities of a hot lunch program for the kids there. One short year later we are heading back up the mountain to see it happen.
As we trek through the Solo Khumbu, one thing that stands out to me is the young age of the porters carrying more than their weight up the mountains. My heart breaks for the young girls and boys, not attending school. That is a privilege unknown to them. Their future, their life, holds no choices for them. Young children I met a few years ago, are now on the mountains doing unimaginable dangerous work to earn a living.
