Onwards and upwards for us. We had blue sky and could feel warmth in the sunshine for the first time on this trek. There has been times where I’ve thought Melbourne's 43 degrees wasn’t looking too bad. Today was another big climb that started out in sunshine and ended in light snow showers. Everyone climbed strong.
Margaret, you will be proud as I’ve taught Josh and Tess the “Nepalese flick”. The only hint I will give you is it’s about clearing your nose when you don’t have a tissue or hanky. You’ll have to get them to show you their new found skill.
We arrived at Tengboche at 2pm. The monastery at Tengboche is the highest in the world. Everyone had bought prayer flags back in Kathmandu and have had them blessed by a monk in the Monastery. A somewhat moving experience. The plan is to release some at Base Camp and some will come home.
Now sitting around the lodge fire and everyone enjoying your comments that I read out each night.
