29 April - 2014 (Evening)
Between packing and unpacking we are mountain guides. This is what my friend
Jon Muir told me once, while we were setting up a trip together.
Every container has been emptied to check all the food available, it means A
LOT. Tomorrow, part of it will be loaded in a truck to go to the intermediate
Base Camp, named Diablum (I believe it's well spelled). It's spring and
facilities are not available, so most of the sherpas and Dorje will take the
ride on the big DongFeng and set the tents and kitchen for us.
A few Yaks are already here, I love to see them in the distance walking in
their particular tired-looking manner walk.
It's time to go for a trek, to stretch out the legs, later on, there will be
pictures posted to make you understand how beautiful this place is.

a two fine hours in just about more than one.
Weather is great, and every morning we have a snow shower that covers all the
camp with one centimeter of snow. It's good to have some moisture in the air
as it helps in the acclimatization process. Besides landscape changes from
morning to afternoon!
Last night we had our first chicken curry, vegetable Dahl Bhat. Dorje made a
great meal, and by now we are already in a Nepali diet I prefer.
Everyone is fine, lazy acclimatize days allow everyone to read, write, dream
about future trips and design high pressure air regulators.
It's great to see members are doing things they can not dedicate time while in
their normal life. I can see in their faces, the relax of being in full
We are at Oz Land, the yellow brick road is just ahead. Big hugs from here,
everyone here having a great time!!!!
