Update 4/20

We had a puja ceremony today. It is a very important ceremony and no Sherpas sleep on the mountain before it. It was very interesting, colorful. They build a big altar and put a lot of different food and drinks near it. We also brought all our climbing gear to put near the altar.
At the end we all danced around the altar and the Sherpas sang their songs.

I also took my first shower todays here at BC. It was pretty comfortable. They provide a big hand pump with hot water and the pump has a connection to the shower. So I pump multiple times to get pressure in the canister and then use shower head.

Now after the Puja we are free to go climbing.
