The last trekking day (27.5) from Namche to Lukla was excellent. The sun was shining through scattered clouds and we were able to enjoy the warmth all day. We arrived at Lukla durig the afternoon and met few other climbers that have been waiting for their flight to Kathmandu few days already. Our trekking agency (Thamserku) made a brilliant job and we were able to continue to Kathmandu immediatelly in the morninig of 28.5. Some of our equipment is still on the way and we are waiting for the information of their arrival to pack them to be sent to Finland.

So, yeasterday we arrived in hot and humid Kathmandu. Immediatelly we were invited to a party that was arranged to honor a German climber Ralf Dujmovits, who has now climbed all fourteen 8000m mountains. Ralf's wife Gerlinde has climbed 12 of the 8000m mountains and is close to become first woman to reach the top of all 14 8000m summits.
