Luanne is now down in Namche Bazaar and will be heading to Kathmandu shortly to join in on the Everest 50th anniversary celebrations there.

Last night she visited another Himalayan Rescue Association’s clinic in Pheriche and talked with some old friends. They were very busy there too this season, 500 patients in 2 months.

Before leaving Base Camp, many teams donated left over supplies to the Clinic for next year. In her e-mail to ExplorersWeb, Luanne writes of her base camp farewell, “Our walk out of base camp yesterday was emotional -- although base camp looked a bit like a ghost town with most teams packed up and gone, our internet cafe, IMG, and Hoffman neighbors were still in camp and it was sad to say goodbye.”
