2 2 Butcher And Kathmandu Street Scene, Reviewing Trekking Equipment [5 of 41]
I returned to the entrance to Boudhanath, and looked at the chaotic street scene, which even had a butcher's shop right on the street. I once again went to Thamel to savor the smells and sounds of this tourist ghetto. I ate a late lunch at the famous Everest Steak House; a meal of steak, French Fries and a cold beer – delicious. I returned to the Everest Hotel for our pre-trek briefing, where our Nepalese trekking guide Kumar showed us our duffel bags, sleeping bags, and down jackets, He demonstrated our portable altitude chamber to show us what we’d have to do if one of us suffered extreme altitude sickness.
