Update from Five Peaks Expedition - Hello from Kathmandu

From Lottie and Ade:   We arrived in Kathmandu on Wednesday - after a pretty long journey - extended now by the 6 hours from Cornwall to Heathrow! This is a really busy place and on the face of it pretty squalid. However I love the hustle and bustle and the Nepalese people are really friendly. There is some real poverty, lots of beggars and children in rags and raw sewage - most upsetting of course are the really mangy dogs and puppies - of which there are hundreds.
