Today was a relatively quiet one in preparation to our departure to Tibet. We had a 9:00 AM team meeting to discuss the nuances of our oxygen delivery system and were lucky enough to have Ted Atkins, its developer, do a presentation. I had spotted him in the hotel yesterday and he graciously agreed to do this for us.
Subsequent to that we completed our equipment purchases and enjoyed a muggy, idle afternoon.
Tomorrow we visit the Bodinath Temple and ask the head Lama to bless our expedition so that the goddess Chomolungma will look upon it with kindness. Last time I visited him (2007) he asked me to check out his blood pressure and his heart. This may have earned me some karma points at the time but not enough to summit! Perhaps it'll be different this time.
On the day after tomorrow, off to Tibet!
