Today our camp was blessed in a puja ceremony by Lama Gyaltzen from Pangboche. During a 3 hour ceremony complete with offerings, chanting, drums and prayers, Buddhist prayer flags and sponsor banners were erected. Climbing equipment for Tom McMillan and friend Nawang Sherpa [who will attempt to be the first above knee amputee to summit Everest] and Ebc medical clinic equipment are now officially ready for use.

Pictured are the 2004 HRA medical clinic staff with the 2004 Friendship without borders expedition along with the lama.
