Back down and leaving BC
24 May - BC packing
A day of resting and packing, and a cake and mild celebrations, everyone was still tired. Apparently there was a bit of a party in Kathmandu to make up for our mild BC effort.

Marty and Giannina are staying on, Marty wants to try a speed ascent.
Previously Tim, with Marty, could not quite reach South Col, but at least Tim had a real expedition experience. He headed down the next day.
I headed to Lobuche and then over the Cho La to Gokyo, the long way back to Lukla.
