23.3.2009 Arrival at Kathmandu 22.3.2009

Checking Halti tents
The temperature in Kathmandu is +47 in the sun and +25 in the shadow. We arrived last night and checked-in to Royal Singi hotel. After a quick shower we went for dinner in Thamel suburb.

Today morning we came to the office of our local organizer, Thamserku. We checked the the tents and cargo. All tents were set up and the zippers and materials of inner and outer tents were checked. All tents are ok for repacking for transfer to basecamp.

When going through the cargo we found out that part of Jussi's stuff was not there. All other staff except harness, slings, ascender and middle layer clothing were there. Even though all was in the packing list, the mistake had happened when packing in Finland. Anyhow, all these can be bought in Kathmandu so no problem.
