Everest 2004: Mountain Madness Expedition 2004 Dispatch one
Day 1: This is Sarah Henley, Everest Base Camp Manager, from Kathmandu.
Today, March 27th, is the start of the Mountain Madness spring 2004 Everest
Base Camp Trek and Everest Climb. Most of the climbers arrived tonight and the
trekkers arrive tomorrow. Everyone is excited and anxious to begin the trip up
to Everest but they are currently more concerned with catching up on lost
sleep, from the long flight. Kathmandu is one of the great cities of the world
and we plan to visit some of the sites in the next couple days and experience
the fascinating culture of Nepal.
