After arriving in the district of Thamel where the mountain climbing agency was based, Sheyan saw four experienced guides waiting for him. The three men and one woman seemed very reliable. The marks of wind and frost were clearly visible on the tanned skin of the three men. The wrinkles on their eyes and forehead were deep, and the outlines of their muscles were pronounced. Their main jobs were to carry the supplies and tents as well as various other heavy works. The woman introduced herself as Hashemi. She was in her thirties and was very fluent in English. She would always smile before she said something. Sheyan could see that she should have some Western lineage in her. The introduction given by the head of the mountain climbing agency was very simple. "These three are Taba, Zenya and Guro. They're as strong as buffaloes and have served mountaineering teams from many countries. They've visited the place you wished to visit six times before. Miss Hashemi is the most famous tour guide in Kathmandu, not only because of her eloquence and professionalism, but also because she's an expert mountaineer herself. She's obtained a number of internationally-recognised certificates." Sheyan actually really wanted to tell him that he did not need the three buffaloes and only needed a guide. It required very little effort for him to carry the supplies himself. But considering that the matter may be too shocking for them and that there was no need to save on money, the three guys successfully found employment. Because Sheyan had said that he was in a hurry, the physical examination process was omitted. They took a bus to their initial destination. Miss Hashemi sat next to Sheyan on the bus and explained various things that he had to take note of. The two people soon got more familiar with each other. After a while, Miss Hashemi could not help telling Sheyan, "Although it may be impolite to say this, Mr. Sheyan, but forgive me for being frank. You're doing the wrong thing at the wrong time. It's now June, and the most suitable time for a pilgrimage to the Lotus Stone is in September or October."
