Greetings from Mikko to everyone! He sent an SMS this morning, announcing that they are back in the civilized world again (i.e. within the range of cell phone coverage 😉 He was both in good mood and health.
But he was already aware of the next little obstacle they may be facing: fog has shut down Lukla airport since last Wednesday, and some 2,500 trekkers are now stranded over there. According to the original schedule, Mikko’s expedition group is supposed to fly from Lukla to Kathmandu only on Saturday. So let’s hope the fog clears soon and they get the planes flying again well before next weekend, because Mikko has got a date with me in Kolkata the following Monday!
