Dinner Party - ABC

Yet another rest day. The Sherpas idea of how I could get a skin colour as good as theirs did not seem too practical i.e. stop wearing sunscreen. The main talk of the day was the forthcoming dinner party. Fancy being caught at ABC without my dinner jacket! On a serious note we had a meeting to discuss summit plans. It was also the first day that it was not very sunny in the morning. At the dinner party we had to make do with ties made out of slings. Unfortunately our guests were not dressed accordingly, but we let them in any way. Much food, wine and beer was consumed, it seemed that most of ABC had turned up. Crusty acted as DJ. A late night in Himalayan terms.
