Dr Dinesh Deonarain is a Fellow of the RNZCUC and has just completed 50 days at Everest Base Camp as one of the Doctors staffing the Everest ER.

We catch up with him in Kathmandu at the end of his adventure as he prepares to travel home.  We talk about his experiences, how he got to work there and the physical and mental strains of working at such high altitude.  We also hear him recite a couple of passages from his blog.  You can read the rest by following the links below.
