Friends, family and loved ones,
We had a pretty busy day here in the very quiet settlement of Khote. After breakfast (which ranged from omelettes for some to rosti, porridge and noodle soup for others), we took a hike down valley for some light exercise. The valley here is wild and rugged. Mostly undeveloped, and very beautiful.
We returned to our lodge and practiced tying some important climbing knots. After lunch, we used our knot skills to make our climbing rigging for summit day. We had some lively conversations today, with topics ranging from our favorite CNN anchors to some other funny zoom faux pas. All the while, we are eating as much food as we can possibly consume. All good!
Tomorrow will be our last day in Khote before moving higher. Thanks for following!
