The official puja ( ! ) for the expedition at the altar made by the Sherpas.  Thamptin Sherpa was the Lama for the ceremony, went on for a hour and a half. A Chinese guy Olyn and a Swiss lady, Christine came over, ended up having lunch with us.Packed the items to be sent to ABC.

The Swiss lady described how she smiled her way through in Kochi fooling the local shopkeepers and rickshaw wallahs. Anand explained the whole medical stuff needed to run the show till he comes back from ABC. The Chinese guy returned with his girlfriend at dinnertime. He seemed to a good guy and aware of things.

Presented a cap to his girl, and was later adopted by the entire team as our sister! Whoa.
