16th April , 2012 -Trekked from Tengboche to Pheriche

Today we trekked from Tengboche to Pheriche today.  Many rose early for s unrise photos of the surrounding mountains.  Cold and brisk, the weather was absolutely beautiful!  Before breakfast we were given a tour of the Tengboche Monastery.  This is a very old monastery and it has even been rebuilt. After breakfast, we had great views of Ama Dablam. Everest looked short in comparison. After nice hike, we had a blessing from the Lama Geshe. The doctors in our group received a second blessing and received a special card. Then our three Camp II adventurers received a second blessing and card as well. Then, “short” hike until lunch- which was at 4040 meters. DJ shared candy bars with everyone to celebrate his birthday. (We sang happy birthday to him at breakfast). Up and up we went and hit 14,000 feet. Then, hiked down to Pheriche and checked into the Himalaya Hotel. DJ’s sister sent special bars for his birthday, which he shared at dinner. Everyone wants the recipe, Danielle! Dorjee Sherpa surprised DJ with not one, but two cakes after dinner too, so his 33rd birthday was celebrated. All of the Sherpa’s had birthday hats on to present the cakes to DJ. The Gods were with us in terms of weather as the day continued to be clear! Despite sunscreen, many received a lot of sun burn.  Altitude hike tomorrow and rest day.
