Hi it’s Paul here.
We woke this morning to find that the Easter Bunny had been to base camp and there were eggs left near our tent!
It’s been a pretty quiet day for me, as I am still trying to recover from my sore throat which has progressed into a chest infection. Yesterday I felt better, as the antibiotics started to have an effect, but this morning I felt not good – very tired, lethargic, sore joints. I slept for much of the day, and feel a bit better now.
Fiona is feeling great and she walked to Gorak Shep and climbed Kala Patar again. A lot of other climbers are heading up to camp 1 tomorrow, and it would be great to be going with them, but I know I have to wait until I am better.
Hopefully this should be no more than a couple of days.
Hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable Easter,
