For those of us who have actually endured the surgery for joint replacements and bone repairs and also have to endure being x-rayed in a booth in public to board the planes and still have to jam ourselves into the sardine-can seats, I protest this recommendation on ethical grounds.

What is the best part of being a woman "of a certain age"?

Thanks for the terrific photos and great narrative of events. I am assuming that "trek" is the same as "trail," and that the wonderful folks who helped you will be without an income until the trails are rebuilt. I wish everyone well.

My question is about the infrastructure of the highways and rail systems. I traveled to Kathmandu from India by narrow guage rail in 1970, and I understand that the line was closed last year and is going to be replaced by a sturdier rail system, which is being financed by India. Based on this information, I am wondering if there are navigable roads "down the mountain," or is air travel the only safe way out of the country right now?

It sounds like you still love what you do, and I find that very inspirational. Thank you!
