Title: Wednesday 8th september, rest day in BC 5200m
Post by: Romke on Sep 12 2004, 18:01
Nothing much happening today, we visited the tents on the other side of the
hill (the 'trekker' side) where there are a couple of large white tents run
by Tibethan women, who sell drinks and fossils..

There is also a 'postoffice' but it is never open and the prices and
possibilities change every day. If you receive a card from us, count
yourself lucky!

Finally there is the infamous Hotel California where you can also spend the
night and have more drinks, but it did not appeal much to us and was smaller
and dirtier than expected.

Back to the candlelight dinner and preparations for the way back up!

As there is only one tent with 3 matresses in IC we will go up in shifts:
first tomorrow Marc will go up with Boris and sleep in IC, continuing to ABC
the next day.

Werner, Ruby and Sander will follow the same schedule, one day later, Mark &
I will leave the same day as them,but will try to get to ABC in one day.
