Jessica WhatsApp:ed some new photos from their trek. She climbed to 4900 m today and then back down to Dingboche, others (including Johanna) continued to 5000 m and are not yet back at the moment.
Edit: Johanna is back now, she went to 5200 m and is very happy :)
I just came down from the mountain, a small peak at 5200 m (we are now in 4500). The people hiking upward looked pretty tired but I felt ok. I sent Jessica back after 450 m of ascent so she would not get too tired. She was doing fine and she was very comfortable with the speed of our Everest-group.
I went a bit faster, because the battery in my camera ran out of juice after we had left the hotel and I decided to run down and get a spare one. I then caught up with the group after about 100 m of climbing and I found it hard to slow down.
So, I'm doing well, lying down in my down trousers and writing here. Mingma just came by and I ordered a three-course lunch :D
