My son Alan made it to base camp on Mt Everest. Here is a picture of him with other trekkers. He is in the red shirt. (The Aussie flag was the one he used to raise in Kandahar, Afghanistan when he worked there as head of one of the medical trauma teams last year.)
He was on the trek with other doctors, studying the effects of high altitude sickness.
He said he has had the most wonderful experience....wants to take his little brother with him when he does the trek again.
