Everest Base Camp Trek: Tucker & Team Trek to Deboche

We had a wonderful climb today. As we left Namche Bazaar and headed up the trai,l the summit of Mt. Everest came into view.  It would not be a good day to make a summit attempt as the plume blowing off the summit reached out for a mile or so and is an indicator that winds on the summit are likely in the 100 mph range.  But it sure does make for a nice photo.  We stopped for lunch by the river and then, with full bellies, headed up the infamous Tengboche Hill.  The team did a great job and in a couple of hours we reached the Tengboche Monastery and were greeted by one of the elder monks.  After our visit, we made a quick descent to the fairy tail land of Deboche where we will spend the night. The team is doing well, a few minor physical discomforts, but to be expected. The tea house staff is firing up the dining room stove with dried Yak dung, hey what ever provides a bit of heat, bring it on.
