Sat Report Wednesday 30 August

Satellite call from Hoseman today (August 30). He had not quite reached 5000 m as he had intended. In fact, he sounded a bit distressed, as if it had been much harder than anticipated and he really felt the lack of oxygen. We were pleased to learn though that common sense had prevailed and that he was descending today to recoup. He was able though to explain to me how to post his schedule of yesterday - which I will do in due course. We were also interested to learn how intrigued he was watching the locals making yak-milk cheese at this elevated ‘dairy’ level!
Today, the heavy cloud over our part of the world lifted and we were able to see the Clock Tower peaks above us were also snow covered - thank goodness for our roaring wood fire tonight!
