sunshine this morning.
Fortunately, it was perfect timing as today is a rest day for both us and the Sherpas. We can hear huge winds up towards the summit right now. We have a very comfortable camp so life is OK, even with 30 knot winds and snow.
Yesterday we came up from Base Camp directly to Camp 2. That is a tough hike, with over 1000 meters vertical gain. Everyone was pretty tired from that exertion. It's funny. because it was incredibly hot yesterday on our way up, which is quite a contrast to what we are experiencing now.
Hope all is well at home with friends and family!
