Thursday 2 september, ABC, 6400m
« on: Sep 4 2004, 19:25 »

Today is a real rest day! The weather is still quite good, not much wind, some light snow but also some sun. Actually the last 10 days have been really good summit days, maybe July/August is actually quite a good climbing season for Everest?

We get out the prayer flags and books and get our Puja. Although only 4 climbers are here, we start with the ceremony as we do not knoow when everybody will be up and the sherpas will not move one inch before we get the blessing from the mountain gods and demons.

After the nice ceremony everybody is settling in and waiting for the rest of the yaks to bring up the rest of the gear while reading and relaxing in the tent.

Suddenly we here a female voice:

'You lazy bastards, can't someone come out and help us?!'

Hey, Ruby has arrived! And Sander as well, even though he is less loud :-)

So now we almost have our team  complete, we do not know where Boris is, hopefully he will come and join us soon.



(song of the day: Eminem, without me. No-one managed to sit still during dinner when Ipod played this great song :-))
