24th April , 2012 - Back to Lukla

Today we left Namche Bazaar on our way back to Lukla. We woke up early as usual and off we went leaving behind the beautiful mountains that accompanied us during our trek to Base Camp. It’s funny that most of the people in the group did not remember the elevation that we trekked on our way to Namche. It was extremely steep and the knees of some of us where getting hammered, but the landscape was so amazingly beautiful that we kept going. What we did not expect was the surprise of the day which became sort of a shot of adrenaline for all of us. Our friend Patty had to leave the group at some point because of symptoms of altitude sickness.  Nevertheless she recovered and went to Everest Base Camp. We never expected to see her again, but as a warrior she trekked for unbelievable hours and she reached us at a time where we were exhausted and became one of the greatest surprises of the day! The group was reunited again! Yeahhh! We kept going to Lukla and looking from a different angle, we saw again a spectacular landscape. Every step of the way was a frame of a beautiful picture. We finally made it to Lukla around 6:00 PM. tired, but happy of having accomplished a trek of a lifetime! For everyone it probably meant something different. For my wife Maritza and me it meant the spiritual journey and an affirmation of our love and compromise to each other in our 25th wedding anniversary!  Tomorrow we take a plane early from Lukla to Kathmandu and then home. Although we are looking forward to that, we realized we are somehow different and richer in experiences.
