Restful Rest Day at Everest Base Camp

Climber Sara Safari relaxing at Everest base camp

Another beautiful rest day in Everest base camp!  Everest guide Terray Sylvester calls in today’s expedition dispatch:

Hello!  This is Terray calling in for the Madison Mountaineering Mount Everest and Lhotse expedition.  It’s April 26th.

Today we had another rest day in base camp.  We’ll be here resting for a few more days before we head up on our second rotation.  It was a beautiful sunny day with a little dusting of snow in the evening.  Our climber Sara Safari made an Iranian dish for all of us called “loobia polo“, a rice, beef, and green bean dish.

Now everyone is just settling in to watch “Baby Driver“.  So, it’s been a good day and we expect another good one tomorrow.

We’ll be in touch!
