Basecamp, 4200 m
Everything is well. We are at 4200 meters in the basecamp. I borrowed a computer here in the tent-kitchen and managed to get a slow internet-connection too. $10 for 15 minutes.
Yesterday we took our gear up to camp one and tomorrow we will hike up there to sleep. Today is a resting day, but I climbed 580 meters because I lost my sunglasses there, near camp one. It was a very rocky area where I dropped them, nobody believed I would find them. But after an hour of searching I found them and got a bit famous here for that. Mission impossible accomplished!
There are many expeditions here. I have gotten acquainted with many of them. Here's an Everest guide who promised to coach me for that mountain, but I should climb up to camp 2 for that. Let's see how my energies are tomorrow.
My oxygen saturation was very good in the morning, 94%, better even than our guides. I'm hoping that my physiology is good for high altitudes, that will be tested for the first time above 6 km in a few days. More info on what has happened when we have been to the summit!
