Before six a clock this morning I left my warm bed and got outside of our lodge to try to spot Malin, Martin and Henrik on Lobuche Peak. Unfortunately it was foggy and even snowing. Hopefully the weather was better 1.500 meters higher.
At 8 we left Pheriche. Jakob and myself hurried ahead since we were going all the way to Namche Bazar. Birgitta and Magnus took it slower since they were only going half the distance to Thengboche.
Jakob and I had a marvelous day. Despite the fact that I was feeling even worse than yesterday it turned out to be one of the best days. The sun was shining, we found a steady pace that didn't tire us, the surroundings where fantastic and we where almost alone on the trail Strange, but we only met perhaps 50 trekkers the whole day.
The trek from Pheriche to Namche took us 6, 5 hours. We only sat down once, 40 minutes for lunch. It's a long day and we were of course tired when we reached Namche but again, a fantastic day.
We checked in at Khumbu lodge where the marvelous family at once took me to a doctor and pharmacy. The doctor told me I had a "chest infection" and I'm now on antibiotics. Hopefully I will feel better in a few days.
Tomorrow we are looking forward to welcoming the rest of the team to Namche. Hopefully with three summiteers among them!
