This is Christine Boskoff calling from Everest Base Camp.
Today we had a breakfast
buffet and invited folks from other expeditions over. Everyone brought their
favorite breakfast dish. We had cinnamon rolls, crepes, cheese omelets,
chocolate cake, yogurt, pancakes, and more. What a feast!
After breakfast a bunch of us
went climbing on some of the large boulders near camp. We had some great
climbing challenges that we relished working out. Later, we took showers,
washed clothes, and in general got ready for moving to Camp 2. For the next
five days we will be at Camp 2 and also have the goal of sleeping at Camp 3.
Stay tuned for more
information from Camp 2.
Best to all, Christine
