06/06/06 Hi Postak, We are back from our Himalayan adventure and it was fantastic! We really had a great time and were humbled by the mountainous beauty of both the landscape and the people. Thank you for making it a special occasion. We did have one minor change to our itinerary which included myself not being able to travel to Tibet.(We were worried about Tina because she has a minor heart condition, but it was me who did not feel well enough for the high altitude of Tibet). While in Nepal, High Asia Tours reimbursed me for the airfare from Nepal to Lhasa.
