River In Clouds
The clouds just barely above the river near Dingboche

Today was our second rest day. Feeling a little homesick today. After our short acclimatization hike of roughly 2 hours, I got a little girly and did anything I could to feel less gross and cleaner, other than bucket shower again because I was worried about getting too cold. I brushed and re-braided my hair, brushed and flossed my teeth, washed my face, put on lotion, and even tweezed my eyebrows. It helped a little. I woke up in the middle of the night with a stomachache again. Altitude sickness is no fun at all. We have "eastern" toilets in our room (no actual toilet seat), and they smell nasty. At least they're inside. 2 or 3 more nights before we get to head back down. The altitude is also making me forget and lose things. Yesterday I thought I lost the GPS and finally found it in my daypack. Today I couldn't find the map notating the photos we took in Namche. I was convinced I dropped it somewhere, but I had given it to Sam. I have no recollection of this.

Slow internet in Australia
My office at an apartment I rented in Australia

These days, it's easy to come across decent free internet and WIFI when travelling. You can travel through much of SE Asia on decent free internet from local hostels; in Europe it's pretty much the norm. Australia however, does not follow this standard. I was shocked to find out when arriving in Sydney, that hostels don't offer free WIFI, they don't even offer free internet access of any sort.
