8th April , 2012 - Happy Easter from Nepal

Clear and cold today, perfect for trekking from Pheriche to Lobuche. We are now sleeping at 4,9oo m.( over 16,000 ft).  We have been joined by an ER physician from the Himalayan Rescue Assoc., she will trek with us to base camp. This morning we were greeted with Easter eggs from the American IMG summit team. Jim Whitaker continues his trek to base camp tomorrow at age 82, still an American legend and quite a nice guy. He is travelling with David Hahn, from Rainier Mountaineering; he has submitted Everest 14 times in 17 expeditions, quite lofty company. Everest and Lhotse are now almost always in sight as we continue to Kala Patar tomorrow and on to Everest base camp the following day.
