day 3: <hope> Kathmandu-Lukla-Phakding

from disappointment, hope springs eternal. we managed to get a charter flight from Kathmandu to Lukla leaving at 7am. we woke up at 430am to catch the flight, well knowing that so many things could still go wrong.

even with a chartered flight, bad weather would still prevail. the bus to the airport could break down or be caught in a traffic jam. our duffel bags may not get loaded on the plane. the plane could suffer mechanical failure and not be able to take off. and even if the plane did take off, we are landing in the world's most dangerous airport.

but we landed safely in Lukla and trekked to Phakding where we stayed the night.

the parents and families of children with life-threatening or life-limiting conditions live with uncertainties. they also live with hope. you can help.

When the world says, "Give up!", Hope whispers, "Try it one more time."
