It's interesting finding guides for a two week adventure to capture images of Mount Everest up close. It's like coming out of the airport in Kathmandu. Everyone wants to be your friend. Since you are starting the conversation typically by email, a part of this is instinct. I'm glad I went with what seemed right. Gopal set me up on an amazing trip that was at once thrilling, at times with some suffering and ultimately sent me back home with wonderful memories, two cameras full of spectacular images and of course two weeks later, wanting to go back again.
Gopal orchestrated things carefully, but I really have to thank my guide Badri and porter Thirta, for showing me the way, schlepping my stuff, putting up with my endless requests for cameras and photo stops. all in all, I felt very take care of and looked after by these three.
