10th April, 2013 - Acclimation Day

The mysterious continues. Why does Luis want to get a cold and insist to buy Strepsils for 990 rupees? Is it the truth that Tommy spilled water in his sleeping bag or did something else actually happened? Who put snuff in Anders and Bosses sink?  

The walk began at 9:00 am. Everyone in the group went slowly up because of the height. The breathing was fast and some of us had a headache.  We walk up to 3900 meters where we visit Khumjung high school that Hillary founded. There was a statue of him there that we also saw. 

In the same village we went into a Gompa wich is a small monastery that monks comes to visit. We donated some moneys that we put beside a yeti scull. 

One of the best things today was Ama Dablam. For most of us it was the first time to see her, one of the most beautiful mountains in the world. We stayed there and took a lot of pictures. Another great thing was that we walk on the world’s highest Airport were small planes and cargo Helicopter lands.

The group was tired to day and after lunch at the neighbor village we went back down to Namche. It felt great to walk downhill instead of up. Back at the hotel we had some lemon tea and then we did some shopping. Everyone agreed this was a great day.
