Today we rested! We had a great breakfast, (a little bit later than normal) took showers, did laundry and had a lot of rest and relaxation in between. We had sunny conditions here on our rest day which helped to accomplish all of the activities that involved water (i.e. showers and laundry). Everyone enjoyed having the day to rest and recover before our first rotation up the mountain to spend a couple nights at camp 1.
Tomorrow we will have breakfast and head up to camp 1 for two nights to help our bodies acclimatize to the higher elevations of 21,000ft. It’s exciting to be moving up on the mountain and everyone is ready.
It’s another beautiful evening here and the soup and hot towels are being served as I type this before the start of dinner.
The moon is getting bigger over the top of Cho Oyu, the sun is setting, and the temperatures are dropping. Hope you all are well,
