Sending postcards from the highest post office in
the world!  

We’re trying so hard to look warm!  Also discussing
the merits of drinking water at altitude, vs. getting
up at night to use the pit toilet with a headlamp.

Our “suite” for five, which created a little extra
body heat in this freezing room.  At least we were
protected from the wind.  None of us slept a wink,
it’s very hard to sleep at this altitude with a racing pulse.

We used our own sleeping bag liners
 and pillowcases in this less than
sanitary room.  One positive thought:
It’s way to cold for bedbugs to survive!
