One day in the books. Filled with last minute errands and Fire and Ice pizza (think Nepali food, then think pizza, then think how Nepali pizza probably isn't very good, then think how if I ate at this place how good their pizza must actually be). Since our team is helicoptering into Namche Bazaar tomorrow (into the Everest Khumbu Valley) we all decided to get sweet badass shades to wear on the flight, since flying via chopper is as badass as it comes. Pics coming tomorrow.

Being in Kathmandu again for the third time, and after three years, it feels a bit bizarre. Some of my memory palaces I use to memorize are from here and I realized they are actually spatially incorrect. Whoops. Guess I constructed them wrong in my head. But also, it's interesting comparing 27 year old, first time Everest climber, to now 32 year old Nelson, 3rd time Everest climber. Back then, I was so excited for this, everything so new and exciting. Now it's all like, seen this done that, let's go climb and do this. I like that. It's more natural, taking care of business style. BRING IT ON!!

For now, off to bed. We have an early start.
