The morning ritual is to be awakened at sunrise with a cup of tea or
coffee in bed.
We are each given a basin of warm water to wash up before going to
breakfast in the dining tent ½
After breakfast we pack our things into our duffels for the porters to
carry or into our day packs for ourselves.
We are given 3 liters of boiled water,
to which we add purification tablets to make sure it is safe.
It probably was safe;
we ate plenty of uncooked fruit and vegetables and drank the liquids
served at meals with no problem.
We added flavoring or rehydration salts to some of our water to provide
a little variety.
The morning was clear and there were beautiful views of the mountain.
The tents were coated in frost;
though it was above freezing,
it was cold enough for evaporation of the dew to cause frost to form.
