Today the egg triangles have peppers and onions! I think everyone is more tired today as we set off uphill again. The route is kind of ugly and short, only three hours. A lot of the route is just along rocks or what look like huge piles of shale rock. At Barafu camp we have lunch of potato stew, pancakes, pineapple and bread. Our assignment is to rest for the afternoon because tonight at 2230 we must wake to start our hike to the summit at 2230. I had a headache when we got to camp today at 15,000 feet but it resolved with rest and Naproxen. So there we were at 1030 at night waking up to have porridge and put on all our coats, gloves and hats to start walking up and up and up for 6 hours to the summit.
