... I took these with me on Friday, my last day at the school, when we had a little party and celebration with the kids. There were games, songs, balloons (which the kids loved!!) and lots of photos. This was followed by a special meal for the kids (with cake from me) and then a little goodbye/thank-you/donation-presentation ceremony.

Despite only being a four hour walk, with no snacks and limited water along the way (our own fault for not eating!), we ...

'POLE POLE' means slowly, slowly and that was the mantra we heard every 10 minutes. The statistics are a little depressing with this climb, as many people do not make it because they succumb to altitude sickness. This is the scariest thought of all, because it is totally indiscriminate and has ...
