  • Trek to Pheriche - Namche Bazaar - WMS Everest Experience 2013 - Daily Dispatches
    and we have now normed we are getting so use to who can come out of left field with the most hilarious comments who has to change their scarves every ten minutes who is the quiet observer and who is ready to dance to anything that has a beat to start the day We are really getting use to each other and feeling good about it We all woke up this morning in Tyangboche cold and shivering 5lbs off before we put our boots on I honestly believe this place invented the Stairmaster every place you go is stairs you can t hardly go to the restroom without having to step up to something This morning I heard did you hear the rats in the wall Evidently we had a rat marathon going on while we were sleeping the sound of tiny little feet racing the Inner Wall Marathon could be heard Therefore some of the first conversations at breakfast had to do with rat stories people knew about personally or heard about this group is really eclectic So we started our day off noticing Mt Everest outside the restaurant where we were having breakfast it was a clear beautiful day with no obstructions The illusion of it being so close made you think you could climb it you ve come this far why not We left the restaurant with some of us going to the Monastery and others of us going to the bakery it is Easter Sunday after all and the bakery and monastery seem like good choices this morning After the Easter Bakestery we sat around before heading on the trail listening to Ave Maria then it became signing with the Madonna MC Hammer Brown eye girl Bonjovi Kayne West Beonce etc I know it s Easter

  • Eventful Day - Namche Bazaar - WMS Everest Experience 2013 - Daily Dispatches
    Namche we came across a Nepali who had fallen off the trail and was in and out of consciousness His hiking partner said that prior to the fall he was complaining of headache and nausea and was feeling very weak When we came up on him he was groaning and bleeding from the skull Due to quick work by the Scottish super docs Chris and Sam along with Chris Clark Barry Deja and Clay our fallen Nepali was up and dancing wiping the ketchup off his forehead and proceeding on down the hill Yes this was a scenario schemed up by Suzi Kirstie Pranav Chris Clark and Liz to test our wilderness medicine acumen But uh oh no one told the Sherpas it was a scenario Lucky for us they did not call the helicopters or the Sherpa Yak ambulance I wanted to say a word about our Sherpas We write a lot about ourselves and each other but we rarely give the attention due to the people that make all of this possible We have a great group of Sherpas They are up first serving us tea keep us organized try to contain their frustration when we don t claim the meal that we just ordered herd us like so many white hairless Yaks wait on us while 10 of us each take 13 pictures of the exact same scene and go to bed after us Wangchou Sherpa is the real Papa Sherpa getting us off to a good start in Kathmandu telling us NO MEAT NO ALCOHOL on the trail and organizing everything He runs a well organized company On the trail Pasang Sherpa is the boss but he does it with patience and a smile looking after both us and the other Sherpas Phula Sherpa treats us
