Namaste friends, family and loved ones,
Up at the crack of dawn to catch first rays light up the summit slopes of Everest. Tenzing Norgay was there to enjoy the sunrise with us (first photo). A very weird sign for a famous mountaineer.
After another fantastic breakfast we trekked up to Sangboche to visit the new Environmental center. We met the manager and he spoke at length about the mission of center.
We stumbled upon a beautiful Stupa along the way (third photo). The eyes of enlightenment see all. Then we dropped back into Namche Bazaar and visited the Gompa and museum. And we wrapped up our tour in the famous weekly open air market that gives Namche its name.
Team is acclimatizing well and tomorrow we push on to the remote village of Thame.
All our best,Carole and Vern Tejas
