A window seat to Everest

I was covering the Singapore F1 Grand Prix over the weekend.

Sunday was race day and as usual I woke up a bit early to check the news. I saw on my twitter feed that a plane carrying tourists to see the Himalayan range and Mount Everest had crashed in Nepal.

I was on a similar flight a year ago myself and the tragedy felt especially personal because of its proximity.
