Sight on Side of Everest

[kids looking at their own film] Harry Kikstra, bossman of the Mount Everest expedition that my brother is part of, has taken some great pictures of the daily life of Taschi Dzom, the village at a mere 4000 meters above sea level that the group has been using the past four days for acclimatization. My brother is the guy waving and carrying the video camera.

The expedition features a climber who loses sight the higher he gets, so he’ll be climbing the last part blind. The goal of the expedition is to raise money for the Himalayan Cataract Project, which aims to provide people with a curable blindness with the operations they need.
