    the ground bridge that was easy to cross Long caravans of Yaks and Zopkyos carried heavy loads bound for Everest Base Camp to support the climbers that will be attempting to summit once the season officially starts in mid April Dave Z wants his daughters to know that the yaks are cute but he s not sure he ll be able to smuggle one home in his suitcase for a pet We wound our dusty way to Upper Pangboche where we stopped at a Monastery We were privileged to meet Lama Geshe We watched him bless the Sherpa teams that were preparing for summit attempts In turn we were blessed by the Lama for safe passage to Chomolungma Everest s Tibetan name meaning Goddess Mother of the World and given orange cords to tie loosely around our necks there to stay until they fall off on their own We also each received a card that reads Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hung Hri A REQUEST TO ALL SENTIENT BEINGS Give up all intentions to harm others from your heart And do your best to benefit from them all If each and every one feels the universal responsibility to do so We will all enjoy the feast of peace Our next stop was another Monastery that had a REAL Yeti hand and skull on display Many photos were taken but no living Yeti has yet been spotted Dave S says after seeing 2 Yeti scalps and a hand he s still not convinced it not just a goat We still hold out hope The Truth is Out There We briefly stopped to have lunch at a small restaurant in the small town of Shomare We ate outside and rehydrated before setting off of the long climb to Pheriche Greg and Diana
