    vulnerable on the mountain We arrived early in Lobuche and our highlight of the day was the amazing club sandwiches that we had for lunch so good in fact that we all had the same meal for dinner There are very few comforts here especially as we climb higher so good food finding an extra blanket in your room free hand sanitizer having a sit down toilet but of course

    room next to mine who was tossing and turning his bed I might as well have been spooning with the guy So after a cold and noisy night we woke up to find the ground covered in 4 inches of snow It was a cold and overcast trek from Dingboche to Chhukung We rested in Chhukung in the afternoon played lots of cards and prepared our gear for Island Peak We were nervous for a while as the weather didn t seem to clear up and thought we might not be able to summit Island Peak but by the end of the afternoon the snow stopped and we had amazing views of the sunset over Ama Dablam The following morning we left for Island Peak base camp an easy 2 hour trek then set up camp well our wonderful sherpas did and practiced in the afternoon using the fixed lines and our ascenders After an early dinner we all tried to get to some sleep at 6pm not easy to do when it is still bright and sunny outside But we did the best we could since our wake up call to start the climb was 1am So after a hearty breakfast at 130am while Jenny stayed at base camp Robin Thomas and I started our climb around 2am under the stars and clear skies The climb was very steep from the beginning and by the time the sun rose above the horizon we were faced with a 90 degree wall of ice to climb before reaching the summit For every 5 steps or moves that we did we had to pause for 10 seconds to catch our breath because of the altitude But after 7 hours of almost constant climbing little water and 3 sneakers bars each Thomas his

    6189m Every day is getting colder and more windy as we gain altitude The key is to stay well hydrated so we are drinking lots of lemon tea ginger tea hot chocolate or simply lots of boiled water yum After a good lunch we took advantage of the afternoon to organize our gear do some laundry and to catch up on some emails It even game enough time for Robin

    up before base camp was successful once again as we had a hearty breakfast at 8am and then had a full lunch at 10am And still after a very steep hike to Tengboche all of us could not get fast enough to the local bakery for chocolate croissants and apple pie With our full bellies in the afternoon we visited the Tengboche monastery where the monks held their daily ceremony of prayers and chants They were delighted to pose for pictures afterward some of them a little too delighted as they seemed to have wandering hands while the photos were taken with the women But as soon as Thomas mentioned the word soccer an old half inflated soccer ball appeared and an impromptu game of soccer was played with the monks the porters Robin and Thomas We are unsure who won as everybody seemed to be playing for the same team but regardless the Swedes were left the most breathless in the end Tomorrow we continue our trek to Dengboche where the change in altitude becomes more noticeable on our bodies But we have climbed slowly and should acclimatize to the increase of altitude well We will stop late morning
