Since our departure from Kathmandu, we have the necessary experience. A two
hour drive from Kathmandu we had to go to a landslide where we could only go
on foot. After a good walk it was then to the border with China. Here we have
slept in a small village close to the border crossing. The next day it was
after the necessary formalities to the border to our first stop in China for
two days to acclimate.
At the time I write this piece in Tingri. After lunch we will leave for the
Cho Oyu base camp. The atmosphere in the group is good. Everyone makes contact
with everyone, and by the different nationalities you hear many languages.
From English to German to Icelandic and even Dutch. There is a lady in
Portugal has lived in The Netherlands and a nice word speaks Dutch. It is also
nice to see and hear how everyone on this expedition has prepared.
The altitude sickness have already had to deal with two Germans. Number one
had to after an emergency stop of the vehicle in which we were vomiting when
we only went on a 5126 meters high and then the rest of the day as a sick bird
in bed. Number two had yesterday suffering from headaches and cold fingers.
Fortunately this morning he felt a lot better. It is cautious to deal with the
height and it is very important to take the time to acclimate to.
The weather is good and everyone up to now is eager to to base camp. On the
one German after everyone feels good and everyone is ready for the next step
to 4900 meters.
Greetings from Tingri (China)
