Happy Halloween! I hope everyone had a great month of October! Do you remember where you were a year ago?
In October 2010, I was literally half way around the world. It was a busy month, filled with adventures. I met a bunch of new people, had Everest in my sights, experienced the effects of altitude, got food poisoning, ate my first Mo Mo and had Pizza in Kathmandu.
This October I am back in the proper hemisphere, but things are still pretty busy! I finished up working in Missouri, spent time with friends and family, took a trip to New York, ran a half marathon and am learning how to take better photos!
So here we have, in photo form, the WHO, the WHERE, and the WHAT of Then and Now.
Random Dirty Children, Yaks, Fellow Travelers, and yes, Mr. L and his Nasty Beard
M in MA, Berreaux in NYC, Red and Lucy the Dog, Mouse the Cat, Mr. L *and a much more manageable beard
2010: The Highest Mountain in The World
2011: The Highest Mountain in Missouri
2010: Lots of Trekking
2011: Lots of Running
2010: Lots of Sherpa Stew
2011: Lots of Bratwurst
2010: 4000 gallons of lemon tea
2011: 4000 gallons of water
I am looking forward to seeing what November holds. I think it will be a lot of hiking, spending time with family, baking, cooking and eating, since I am currently staying with my Mom and have plenty of time on my hands (and no phone service or internet!) and lots of great people and places to see!
What were YOU doing last October? Have things changed? Or are they happily the same?
