    Hello Fabian,
    Thank you for your email.We had a Christmas of mixed emotions as it was the first Christmas without my mother who died earlier this year. Michael was working that day and our youngest son Thomas was overseas. Still we had the rest of our extended family together and it was lovely to give thanks for all we have.When I learn how to attach photos I will send some photos from the trek.We found the trek difficult in parts, but the joy was being with you and the rest of the crew -you are a very special group of people and we were so fortunate to be able to meet you all.Bhutan was interesting and we managed to see and experience a great deal of the countryside and culture which we thoroughly enjoyed.It was wonderful to be able to meet up with my ex-pupil, Tandin, and his mother, Sonam, and to visit Tandin’s school.Tobgay was a very nice and interesting person,but we are not sure he was the right guide for us.In our opinion, he needs to develop his ability to “read” people more carefully and once he does this, he will be a more effective guide. We are not the type of people who need to have someone looking after us every second of the day and it was that, plus him not being straight with us about the accommodation,which caused some angst. the driver he used, Sonam, was excellent and he doubled as our guide and driver when Tobgay had a family emergency.Burma was wonderful and there are some interesting treks there too-they would have to be done in the cooler months though,as it was very hot when we were there.Once again,Fabian,thank you for all your efforts.We had a wonderful time and very much appreciate all your effortsto ensure that we had the best of experiences.
    Please keep in touch.We hope 2013 brings you happiness,laughter and sunshine.
    Kind regards,
    Marilyn and Michael.
