It was the day we saw the Ama Dablam for the last time. Most of the hiking days we saw the Ama Dablam and it had become my reference point. Sander joined us for breakfast but was still not eating much. He said he was feeling better but rather quickly he started to have a hard time again

After walking for another hour things went worse. Sander started to vomit now. Seger and I divided Sanders backpack and I tightened my walking sticks against my bag so I could carry his in my hand. Pasang was putting some ORS (a combination of dry salts to help rehydrate the body) in a bottle

Anyhow, we arrived without any problems in Gorak Shep and after some Tibetan bread and a cup of tea we went on for another 2 hour hike straight to EBC.

This day was a test day. The day started with a visit to a museum about Mt. Everest. We learned a lot and our respect grew for sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay for being the first persons ever standing on Everest in 1953. Actually there have been others on top of Everest before them but they never came back.
