We had a very good field exam day yesterday and met last night to finalize our graduation plans. We have students who are graduating with honors and just a few who did not do quite so well but overall we were pleased with the students. It also appears that this was the best-behaved group we’ve had.
Our graduation ceremony will be outside this morning and starts just as soon as the sun hits the location. It’s too cold to hold the ceremony without some sunshine. We should have that completed by around 10 this morning. I have a lot of loose ends to tie up and some bills to pay but we will then all leave for Namche around noon. We should be there by dinner time. We’ll hike to Lukla on the 2nd and hope to fly to Kathmandu on the 3rd.
