Departure day

This week has felt pretty crazed - and crazy... I've been kicking myself all week for not taking this week off to prepare...
But here we are, the 21st October (Coleridge's birthday) as ready as we'll ever be to depart to Kathmandu at 9.30 tonight.
The tube for my platy has black mould growing in it, which I only noticed this morning. Emergency dash to Sainsburys (on what must be their busiest day this year) for a bottle of Milton... The mould 's proving a little stubborn, so I might need to grab another waterbag (or tube) in Katmandu... so much for allowing YESTERDAY to deal with such minor hiccups...
We each have a list of mobile numbers - am hoping my trains/bus to Heathrow is less eventful than today has proved so far!
I'm full of sugar and not much else...
SOOOOOO excited...
One of my volunteers is obviously going through a bad patch right now, but when I told him I'd be away for ten days to do this trek, his face lit up, and he said, 'I went on a 3-day trek in the Himalayas - it was the best experience of my whole LIFE.'
A good note to close on.
So - til I get back...
