One of the greatest gifts a mom can receive is her e-mail inbox jammed full with messages from her traveling son, especially when he's been out of touch for many many, many days. Since Brad began his Annapurna Circuit trek he's only been able to send messages home twice. Here are a few of the glorious photos he's sent. These photographs greet me first thing in the morning when I open my e-mail. Not only do these communications let me know Brad and Yessi are safe, they show me, with their smiles, they are having a good time. I also get to share vicariously a few of the spectacular sights they are seeing. Brad returns home Christmas Day. That's tomorrow! What a wonderful Christmas Gift!
