At Khunde hospitalBeautiful view of Namche)Mice Pick-up

We all arrived in Namche yesterday, the weather is beautiful and the views of the surrounding peaks are impressive. Our research objects are also well off and hopefully getting acclimatized as well as we do. Today we took a little hike to the village of Khunde and visited the local hospital, where Dr. Pokharel will do his study over the next days. We will make our way towards Gokyo tomorrow stopping along the way in ladges.

It’s really amazing seeing all porters along the way, who carry incredibly heavy loads!

We will also start with our color vision testing today and hope for an interesting outcome.

    Hey guys,

    This is pretty amazing stuff. Must be almost as good as teaching histology, right Tej? Keep the information and pictures coming. Just to make you feel good, the weather here in Philly on friday is 82, with 70 and 80 degree weather forecast for the next week.
