31st May 2004 | Official homecoming dinner

Posted on May 31, 2004

Indian Passport Got my passport back. Started for Sera monastery at 1000hrs. Generally a little jaded about monasteries by now.

Went shopping after a hurried visit. Bought me a cap and one for Roney. Had an invitation from CTMA for dinner at Summit Camp restaurant. This was official. 3 Representatives were also present. Yesterday’s was a faux pas, I think. Got to know that the Russians summited yesterday in the central North Face as they had planned! Great guys.

Went out after dinner with Pande and Bhanoo. Bought three ladies’ caps. Have told the reception to give shakeup at 0500 hrs.
