Update: A lengthy meeting
took place today after breakfast with Ang Jangu, a boss of the agent who is
here to run the camp. We worked out the exact oxygen needs of the team and the
logistics arrangements to ensure the bottles are available when needed for the
first and second summit bids by both groups.
After that, it was another
day of relaxation.
Just before lunch, Kim Boon,
one of the expedition directors, returned from his final acclimatisation
cycle. It has been a long time since all the expedition members were together
at Base Camp, and it was good to have everyone here again.
