Labouche to Dingboche: It was very cold waking up. The air was so crisp in the night the whole tent had frozen.  It had a thin layer of ice around the entire roof.  We tried to stay in our tent until the sun came up to make it warmer before we got fully dressed. We had a short hike down the glacier valley. Because we had a short hike and we were feeling like we had finished our primary goal, we decided to stay in bed until after 8am. Once the sun had fully baked our tent, we emerged to start another day. We took our baby wipe shower in the tent when it was warm enough to get dressed. When we got out of our tent we found out that we were the last tent in our group to be torn down.  We packed up our stuff and prepped our daypack for the hike as the porters tore down the tent.

When we finally got on the road we walked on mostly level ground to the next campsite.

Thagnak to Dzonglha (across the Cho La Pass): We woke up at 6am to get a quick bite to eat before we were to go across the pass. It was expected to take 3.5 hours to cross the pass then half an hour across a glacier field then 3 hours down to Dzonglha. I woke up not feeling well and ended up taking Dymox for the first time. The medication made my fingers and feet tingle from
