Day 28 - May 9


Namaste everyone, it is May 9th. and we are up at Camp 3, getting up here to Camp 3 yesterday, which is actually really good. It was hot, and by the time I got up here it had started to get overcast and started to snow and get a little bit cooler. We set up our tent, and spent sort of bit of a restless night, there was a lot of wind, a lot of snow, and I went out and had to shovel the snow at least once.

So today, the 9th, we are up here with the Polish team, who have decided to go down because they don't have any food left. They hadn't planned on coming up here, and would be staying. The Italian team is up here as well, I'm not quite sure what their plans are. We're not quite sure what our plans are.

Two different forecasts, one forecast is for heavy winds, and the other one is for a lot of snow. You can certainly go down in either one of those, going up is certainly a lot more of a challenge. We're not quite sure what we are going to do, we may hang tight, or we may head down. It's still early here, so ..... conversation garbled for a long period here....but other than that, everything is good.

That's about it. We'll talk to you soon. Bye.
