It's a turning into a beautiful evening here at Camp II. Tshering, Lakpa, and
I are sitting in one of our tents cooking up some Phad Thai and enjoying the
clouds parting to let in a last bit of sunlight. It's about 6 pm here and were
arrived a couple of hours ago.
I had a bunch of troopers out there today along with a couple superheros.
Lakpa and Tshering were again carrying big loads in the absence of Mingma.
We've just gotten word that Mingma spent last night and tonight in the
hospital doing some minor surgery and will be discharged tomorrow. Jiban tells
us he is doing well.
Well tomorrow it's on to Camp III and a short stop over before heading off to
the summit in the early morning hours. Our weather today was perfect and we
are hoping today's trend continues through Wednesday afternoon. We will be in
touch from CIII tomorrow.
