14th April, 2013 - Trek to Pheriche

Today was a very long and tiring day up to Lobuche. We walked about six hours but it felt longer. After some tea our guides wanted us to walk even further up to acclimatize - and we reached 5015 m before we went back down again, to our lodge. We are now loading our batteries for tomorrows trek to Gorak Shep, and further to Everest base Camp, where we are supposed to have lunch with the Peak Promotion Everest Summit expedition.  So now it’s all about eating and drinking as much as we can to get fueled up for tomorrow. Our guides and Sherpas are really feeding us well and we have lots to choose from, even if the appetite sometimes lacks on this altitude.

Good night
