Miss Hawly, as she is known, has been in Nepal since the 60's recording all of the activities of the climbers here in the Himalayas. OMG OMG OMG OMG I met her!

I was thinking that ya look well so that is why I was suspecting that it may have been pre-trip based on your recent ordeal with some nasty grub.

I take it from the smile on your face you are feeling much better?

Very cool, Gift! I still have to read through all your blog updates, as I've barely had time to get online and check things real quick lately. So glad you are on the mend!

I was sitting in the Lobby at the Yak and Yeti waiting for my Mountain Madness contact to come. We had some more insurance work to do to get my $8,500.00copter ride taken care of. AND I was awaiting the arrival of the other trekkers in from Lukla now. In came a Sherpa man with this timy lady on his arm. I thought.........naw. Sagar, my Mountain Madness Nepal guy smiled and went to tell her hello. As he was getting up I said "Is that....." he filled in "Miss Hawley." I asked if I could meet her and went over and she was pleasant. She asked where I was from and I said Nevada and she said, well, that's alright. and smiled. She was here to speak to some Japaneses folks that were standing beaming ear to ear a few feet away. I sat back down and thought, now that is like meeting massive Everest History all in one small package. Later, I was in a book shop in Thamel and got the book written about her years ago. If I see her here again I will see if she will sign it. None the less, It is my Katmandu memento, getting the book here and meeting her all in one morning!
