This second transmission comes from Kathmandu. Joe Hughes and Liz Pace have been touring around the capital of Nepal. Joe says the city is busy and filled with people, sacred cows, and monkeys. They spent time at the Swayambu Buddhist Temple, also known as the Monkey Temple. Later, they visited a smaller temple where they were welcomed and eventually met the Llama of the temple. Liz's 39th birthday was on March 21 and while they were at the temple, Liz received a special blessing for her safe return from Everest. Joe says even if the trip ended now, they would be very happy.
