Made it to Namche Bazaar

This place is beautiful! Day 2 of our 9 day journey to Everest Basecamp found us trekking to Namche Bazaar. We covered a total of 13.1 kilometers. I am at 11,200' above sea level and will take a rest day tomorrow in order to acclimate to this elevation. This place sure has changed since the last time I was here (4 yrs). There is now running water, hot showers at select places, and hi-speed (ish) internet access.
After our rest day we will trek to Deboche which will begin to provide us with the most beautiful views imaginable. Another high light will be the Tengboche Monastery.
Thank you for your prayers. Until next time.
