Not to be pedantic, but one picture is labelled as a Astar B3, but looks suspicously like a Jet Ranger.

Great pictures.

Yes like a temple tank but different, this one was for Spirit cleansing.

The earth quake left only minor damage, but still a hospital in Lukla collapsed as did a few homes? It seemed very sever near the Solukhumbu - Everest region.
