Habari ya asabuhi mimi rafikis kwa progressi Everest Tibeti na North Col!
(Hello and good day to all our friends and family following the progress of
the Everest Tibet and North Col team!!) Today is Thursday 17 April and this is
Jeannette McGill of South Africa reporting for the team from Chinese Base
Camp. Today we all walked north down the valley to the old Rongbuk Monastery
and explored the llama caves and surrounds.
We then carried on to the nearby cluster of
teahouses at a checkpoint and enjoyed a refreshment of choice from the
comfortable confines of a tea house tent. We then headed back to the welcome
Summit Climb base camp for a late lunch. Everyone is presently relaxing either
reading in tents or watching a movie in the dining tent before dinner a bit
Tomorrow we get to pre-pack our duffels for yak
weigh-in before departing for interim camp the day after next. Keep up the
welcome support! Baie dankie almal! (Thank you very much everyone!!)
