Life in EBC / the trip so far
First of all, we have no proper internet connection in EBC so I – at least initially – had to go through some pain in order to update my blog /FB page! Here I am on the “3G rock” halfway between EBC and nearest village Gorak Shep…!
Then, however, since yesterday, I found out about a spot on the Khumbu Glacier / beginning of the Icefall, where there is a 3G connection – and a tent set up by some guys, where you can surf without freezing to death!
Below are some images from our trip so far, including the trek to EBC, life here and our training before heading up the mountain.

In Pangboche, we visited Lama Geshi and got a blessing for climbing Everest, or “Chumulungma as they call it in Sherpa language / Tibetan.
