Mt. EverestSeptember 1st, 2008 | Posted by in 03-Nepal
Finally we got to see the great Mt. Everest while en route to Bangkok. She’s so beautiful standing awesomely above the clouds at over 8,000m.
There was utter confusion before takeoff as to who was sitting where. As warned by the Lonely Planet, Royal Nepal Airlines tend over their tickets and amazingly they had also issued too many boarding cards – we couldn’t believe it. There were three for the window seat next to us – so amusing. Whatever happened, we were not giving up our seats!
If they can’t get the issuing of tickets right, it didn’t fill us with confidence that they could get the aircraft maintenance right. We are still in flight as I write this post and are just about to receive our food – probably Dhal Bhat – if you don’t receive this post, you’ll know why .
Update: we have arrived safely at out hotel in Bangkok and will soon be tucked up in bed. Will upload a post at some point tomorrow.
