The team spirits are high, the team health is good and the weather still undecided. We are awaiting for a window and keep ourselves busy with hikes up to Kala Patar, Pumori Camp 1 and Base Camp as well as for the e-mail spot in Gorak Shep. We are playing poker in the high altitude Casino (real chips available) and watching other groups betting on the current weather window for the summit push.
It is my birthday today. – one of my presents was packed in a wag bag wrap bag for the lack of wrapping paper – creativity at its best. I took a great hike up to 6000m, the weather was calm and sunny. I sat on the top for 30 minutes to get the best views of Everest and Lothse and keep the acclimatization up. Back at Base Camp we are still trying to master the slack line and just remain sane with little games, jokes and tremendous food. Last two nights we had ‘death by chocolate’ deserts by our master Chef – Serki.
