If there is anyone, and there are not many that I can cite, that I would like to thank from my heart for " being there"’ when we needed assistance the most, it was Birendra and his staff. They went beyond the call of duty. I am witness to rude behavior of monks barking orders to them, shouting from foreigners for immediate assistance and last minute requests and changes, all which were NOT part of their contract. They could have chosen to walk away from the event, most firms would have done so given the way they were mistreated, but he and his staff did not. For, they believed that helping us, against all odds, was the RIGHT thing to do.
