You know you're climbing with Russians when...
11:28 a.m. EST Apr 15, 2004

...the hotel staff tells your expedition leader to not hang the drying fish on the balcony because other guests were complaining of the smell. So now they're in a box in his room. Glad I'm not rooming with him, although my socks after the couple days of trekking might be in contentiontion for smelling close to the drying, whole fish.

Yep, Abramow is back and this time ExWeb is with the team! Dave has this to add:

If you ever come to Nepal and are stressing about fogeting drugs, don't - you can buy everything here over the counter and for pennies. Just picked up metrotinidazole (powerfull antibiotic), Acetezolomide, and Nifedipine (Schedule H - don't know what that means, but sounds important) - for maybe 2 dollars and some change.

Today the team are on the low budget bus caravan to Everest North side.

The Russian Adventure team has recently been on trips to Elbrus and Ararat, over in Turkey. They also ran a successful Everest expedition last year and are running another trip again this year to the big E. This time, Dave from team ExWeb is with them.
