Lying in the Base Camp in a sleeping bag  it is easier to think than at 7000.

 

What's happening? Yes, as usual, the Chinese pulled with a fixed ropes. The Weather is snowing. The route has more than 1 m of snow. Wind is weak. It does not blow away the snow.

 

We rest in the lower camps. Yesterday there was a concert of guitar music and singing. Move for cinema. They took as participants go to bed. What else to move?

 

At the Base Camp and other camps in the abstract there are several Ukrainian girls, each of whom wants to climb Mount Everest. But they have feeble chance. And girls are slender,  gaunt already by waiting. Our Tanya is full of strength and desire!

 

In general, all are alive and healthy. And ready to storm.

 

It is kaif - in the morning to lie in a tent and philosophize. ))
