Ama Dablam Daily Report: Thursday 16th October

Kathmandu (1355 m)

René spent much of today packing and re-packing his two duffle bags - one to go directly to Base Camp and the other to accompany him on his trek up to Base Camp from Lukla Airport.  He spent some time walking around the shops in Kathmandu, taking pictures of fossils for his MSc (The Geology of Everest) and relaxing.  He also  purchased a pair of removable down trousers which his team leader had recommended for "summit night".  Tomorrow an early start was planned with the group flying from Kathmandu to Lukla Airport.  After landing, they would begin their 1st day's trek up to Base Camp.
