We are on our second acclimatization day in Dingboche.
This lodge is spotless compared to the last place, actually no comparison. The rooms are clean and we have a HOT shower! The food generally is really good everywhere. They grow a lot of potatoes and we can get french fries at every stop. They also do a lot of noodles and spaghetti is a common item we consume!
In the lodge we have met two summit teams and have had interesting conversations with everyone. We also met a nice Indian family whose father had summited in 2004 from the Tibet side and is here with his wife and 7 year old son.
We have not had internet for a few days and the cell phone here is intermittent. We are posting these message from a nice internet café in Dingboche. We will probably not be able to post until we get back here. The plan from here is to head to Loboche Thursday and Kala Pattar Friday and Base Camp the next day. That’s the plan anyway all dependant on the weather.
