A friend and co-worker worker of mine did something horrible today: he brought in fresh-baked, chewy, soft, chocolate chip cookies.

That bastard.

Do you know how long its been since I've had a decadent dessert or treat? I had Applebee's after my Half Marathon, and I had waffles after my 15k, but since then, nothing. At treat for me lately is fruit and yogurt for dessert, or something equally healthy.

But I wanted that cookie. Oh, I wanted that cookie like 14-year old me wanted to touch a boob: with my entire being. I visualized the taste, the texture, the melt-in-your-mouth goodness of the chocolate, and how good it would taste with my coffee.

(Yes, coffee. Fuck milk and cookies. I'm a Dairy Guy who hates white milk - oh, the irony.)

I broke down. I succumbed to temptation.

Not only did I demolish that cookie, but one of it's sisters as well. It was a whirlwind of crumbs and teeth.

And it felt good.

Do I feel guilty? Well, sorta. But I justify it with the 10km run I did this morning, the apple I ate at lunch, and the fact that I just wanted it.

So there - I've confessed. My shame has been made public, my crime brought to light. It's like a weight has been lifted of my chest.

Confession is good - and tasty.

Mt Everest known as 'Sagarmatha' in Nepal and 'Chomolungma' in Tibet is popular dream destination among all adventure lovers. Everest Base Camp trekking is slightly demanding and requires a fair level of fitness before you begin.

    The trek starts from Kathmandu after a short 35 minutes flight to the Tenzing-Hilary airport at Lukla (2642m). After the scenic mountain flight, the trek start through Sherpa villages and farmlands gradually rises to Namche Bazaar (3440m.) where few nights spend for acclimatization (to be familiar with altitude). During the rest days, we explore the large Sherpa village at Khumjung and experience their lifestyle, beliefs, skills and warmth. The Prayer flags, Chortens, Mani walls and Monasteries justify to the importance of Buddhism in their lives throughout the wilderness.

    Everest Base Camp (EBC) trek beyond Namche continues with several ups and downs and the trail continues to higher altitude where the night-time temperatures down to zero. You will get opportunity to explore the alpine vegetation. Finally, the one way trekking destination ends at the base camp of Everest or climbing the Kalapathar hill.
