Lama Blesses Mayo Everest Team


From correspondent Joel Streed in Nepal:

On a day when the Dalai Lama is visiting Mayo Clinic, it seems appropriate we feature a Lama as part of our Everest coverage. After a short trek today, the Mayo research team arrived at the village of Pheriche, on the trail to base camp at Everest. Earlier in the day, in the monastery at Pangboche, the Lama Geshe, blessed the team members and their research mission.
