we hiked up to the Everest hotel at 3880 m to acclimatize . The enclosed photo of me shows Mt. Everest just above my head showing the most wind swept snow from its peak . Also in the photo is Lhotse and Ama Dablam. Ama means mother and Dablam means jewelry pendant around the neck . Beautiful sunny day today . We are resting with our guide on a patio having a coffee before we go back to Nammche.
