Day 35 2nd May
Rest day – washing a VERY much needed shower. Ever had the experience that you can you smell something and it smells BAD – then realising that it is you. Well that’s my experience of walking down to the relative warmth of BC – my clothes warmed up and so did me and the smells….hmmm. The shower was sensational though and everyone is enjoying some BC luxuries. The air is so much thinker now it is easy to sleep and even though the night time temperature still hits minus -12? C, it seems warm and friendly compared to our night at camp two 7500m.
