Dingboche and acclimatisation hike

Yesterday morning the whole team visited Lama Geshi in Pangboche monastery and received his blessing. Traditionally this Lama (priest) blesses all the expeditions and sets the date of the Puja Ceremony in Base Camp, without this ceremony our Sherpa?s will not climb the mountain. Cording to them the mountain is a god and you have to pay respect in the form of offerings before you can climb. From Panboche it?s a short hike to Dingboche at 4410m, our team is strong and doing very well. We have a good mix of nationalities, what keeps conversations very interesting. Also most off us know each other from previous expeditions. In Dingboche we are staying in the cosy Sherpa resort. In the evening we gather around the warm stove and tell jokes and stories. Today we went on a acclimatisation hike to 5000m, we reached here easy and this will help us for our walk to Lobuje at 4900m tomorrow. In the morning the weather was very nice and we had fabulous views on; Makalu, Ama Dablam and our next objective Lobuje east. Tomorrow we will walk to Lobuje village, where we rearrange our gear for the climb. The next day we will climb to Lobuje east high camp where we pitch camp to make ourselves ready to climb the peak. Stay tuned for more, Arnold Coster, expedition leader
