Carlos Restrepo, member of the Montville Rotary Club now for some years, told us this week about his trip to Everest Base Camp and Island Peak. He captured his audience with his photos and stories about people living in remote places of the world who carry everything they need up huge mountains on their back. He told us about the Yaks that can only live in high altitude and whose dung is being used to warm the houses. 
He told us about his months of training - training mostly meaning a lot of walking, hiking, and some running.
