Today we got up at 7am, had our usual washy washy and headed up for breakfast. For breakfast we had porridge, cornflakes and muesli and some toast accompanied by delicious hard boiled eggs. After breakfast, we headed out for an acclimatisation walk to Hotel Everest View (3880m above sea level) where we stopped and enjoyed a beverage whilst taking in the spectacular views of Everest and Ama Dablam. Soon after this we slowly descended back to Namche where we enjoyed a healthy lunch. This lunch consisted of Tibetan bread, bean curry, boiled vegetables, coleslaw and some lemon cordial. After lunch, some of us relaxed in the lodge and others went into Namche to do a bit of shopping and to grab some snacks for our trek tomorrow. The walk to Namche was a risky idea due to the fact there are many flights of stairs that must be conquered. We then returned to camp for our afternoon tea and our usual washy washy. Our afternoon tea had our usual hot beverage and savoury biscuits. Some of us then spent the afternoon catching up with a group from Queensland whilst others read books and continued shopping. It is now 5:30pm and we are eagerly awaiting our tea.
