Rene arrived in Kathmandu this morning and settled in to the Shanker Hotel.  Steve Moffat, the team leader did a thorough equipment check with him.  Only a new pair of gaiters and a small foam mattress had to be purchased.  Temperatures in Kathmandu were in the region of 29C. Good weather was predicted for the trip and it was hoped that not too much snow would fall during the following weeks.  A meeting of the entire team was held in the early evening where the group had an opportunity to become acquainted with each other.
