Our leader Tomi
Kedar, Sonam ja Chandrey
BC just before the snow storm
Today we spent a rest day. Some of us visited around BC where can be find a lot of new climbers. Our Sirdar Sonam brought good news about the route over Khumbu which should be ready tomorrow or a day after. This will mean that we are on the route no later than Sunday night. Timo stays in Tengboche from where he starts his trek to BC tomorrow.

We have three Sherpas taking care of our BC basics. Sonam, our Sirdar, has climbed Everest five times and summited Cho Oyu, Shisha Pangma and Manaslu as well which all are 8000ers and he has been more than 100 times above 8000 meters. Now Sonam is taking care about our equipments up to BC and down again and communicate with local officials. Chandrey is our BC chef and make all food with assistant cook Kedar.

All is well in the expedition.
