In 1982 I did the complete trek from Jiri (SP) to Everest base camp. On the way we passed a Monastery at one of the high passes before we reached Lukla. It was raining, snowing, hailing ect. as I passed and a monk motioned me inside with a wave of his hand. I stayed for a few hours sharing tea with this monk who spoke little or no English. Before I left to join up with my friends on the trail I gave a donation and offered to take his photo and send it to him. He proceeded to get completely dressed up in this wonderful costume and posed for a few shots. I sent them to him at the address he provided and I hope he received them. This is a trek I would recommend to anyone who wants to venture to the Khumbu. It gives you two weeks of acclimatization before getting to the "Big Ones" and can provide many adventures along the way. October, 1982. Kodak Ectachrome 200. Pentax Spotmatic F. William Marler
