A restful day at EBC. I slept poorly, but can feel that I am almost over this stupid viral URI. Auspicious day to unpack, improve the tent, take a shower, and establish contact with my family. I was even able to put up a blog post from the toasty confines of my own tent, true luxury!Yes, we have wifi here, and that is amazing.A typical blog post of mine with about 50 photos seems to take about 4 hours to upload here… when the rest of the team arrives, we anticipate that things will grind to a halt, sorry to say!Bandwidth is the issue… Still, it is great to be able to make contact with the outside world at all, even if just text.
Much of the rest of the team went for a walking tour of upper EBC, but I chose to stay behind.It was windy and cold (so, so cold here!) and I wanted to give my trachea and lungs a rest. Besides, I have all the time in the world to make a stroll up there in the coming weeks.
Word of the day: Restoration.
