Still soaking up the “rich, thick air” in Namche Bazaar, our Everest team continues their dropback period.  Here’s Everest guide Terray Sylvester with today’s dispatch:

Hello!  This is Terray calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Everest and Lhotse expedition.  It’s May 8th.

Today we had another rest day in Namche.  Folks took it easy, just like yesterday – haircuts, massages, hamburgers for lunch down at the Sherpa Barista, and some hikes and walks around town. Tomorrow we will have another rest day here.

So, all is well here in Namche Bazaar and we’ll be in touch!
