A dusty descent

April 18th, 2008

Took us 6 hours to the 1100m lower Duboche.
We can not freeze tonight for a change, and don’t need to stop for breath between *every* bite. The ccampsite is nice, with a view of Everest and Ama Dablam, and surrounded by pines and rhododendron. Tonight we dine inside of a lodge, and can maybe play cards without gloves on.
Right before entering the campsite we saw what must have been the same puppy from Phortse from 6 days ago! The other village is only about 2 hours walking from here, and the dog loked the same, had same puppy teeth, and was very playful and wanted to be petted.
Tomorrow morning we visit the Tengboche monastery, where our head guide Thupten spent ten years as a monk.
This day ended with quite a happy ending - several shots of sunset hitting Everest, and a return of appetite and solid pooping!
