We have spent the last couple of days rehabilitating to 'normal' life (what is 'normal' life – discuss) hanging out in Kathmandu. Traffic, beer, people and fast internet don't seem so unusual. Our bags are packed, air freight sorted, and whopping helicopter bills paid, which was pretty interesting.
The helicopter money man arrived at our hotel, and immediately got his Visa machine out – this guy means business, but I got one on him by throwing down two stuffed envelopes of greenbacks. "You want to pay cash?" "OK, no problem". Five minutes of cheetah quick counting and they were out of there. I like doing business in Nepal.
Today we went hunting for Christmas presents, and probably got ripped off, but hey it was good fun and Dave found the girl of his dreams at one shop.
Tomorrow we fly home.
Thanks for all the folks who have emailed and texted, it means a lot to us. We will be updating the blog in the future with continuing adventures of Team Samsung.
