“Hello Pasang,I just wanted to send you a short note thanking you and Tandi(I hope I spelled it correctly)for all your help and hospitality, while Lacon and I were in Nepal. Your experience and helpfulness made this a very special trip that will never be forgotten. Ringee and Puree (I hope i spelled it correctly) were as good as gold, and helped make our trek a very special experience. It was not just that you guided us along, but you were all very friendly and genuine, and your friendships will not be forgotten.
I hope I make it back to Nepal one day, and if I do I won’t hesitate to look you up. Thanks again, and Happy New Year!
I will send you a couple of photos when I get them done.”
