12th May 2014 - “A Long Walk to Everest Base Camp” lecture by Maureen Robinson

Maureen truly entertained us with tales about the trip that she and her husband had made to Everest Base Camp. We heard about the lows of the expedition including aching limbs, the mountain of rice and vegetables, altitude sickness, the extreme cold and the sad lack of toilet facilities but always told with a considerable amount of Maureen’s sense of humour . On the up side she spoke about the magnificent scenery, the physical accomplishments, the culture of Nepal and most of all the amazing people. Accompanied by a delightful slide show, she transported us to Nepal and inspired us all.
