We came across tents that looked like someone had used scissors or a knife and had cut pieces out of them. It wasn’t that – an avalanche had buried a camp with 4 tents and broke both legs of one of the Sherpa’s and his shoulder.
It was my first experience sleeping with a mask with oxygen flow. It felt and looked like being in hospital. Indeed the whole living at Camp 3 and 4 feels like being ill. I had to alternate between my using my spoon and replacing my oxygen mask.
Sleeping was ok but sort of like cat or dog. I kept one eye opened as I thought a chunk from a glacier might come out way.
