Going up, MBC in back

Almost there

Home sweet home

Yeah, we're going to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC). We started hiking at 9 a.m. and went from 3700m to 4100 m. I got there at 10:45 a.m. Unfortunately the cloud were moving in and out, so sometimes I could see the peaks, and sometimes I couldn't. This seems to be a typical pattern, and the mornings are the most clear, so I'm hoping for a clear morning. Tonight I'm rooming with the Danes. There has been some drama going on with the group. Stephanie has been sick, and has resisted all efforts to stay at a low altitude. Gopal has not been very assertive about her staying lower, and now she's really sick. So Teresa has volunteer to do a short hike to ABC, then go down with Stephanie and a porter. That's why I'm rooming with the Danes tonight.

ABC is very busy. Alot of people dayhike up, and then go back down. Alot of people stay here. 3 Australians are here but forgot to make a reservation. They put a tent up for them inbetween the buildings. It snowed lightly at night, and was quite cold.
