IMG guide Justin Merle reports that his team spent a nice rest/acclimatization day today in Deboche. Everyone is doing well and having fun. This morning they visited the Nunnery, then hiked back up to Tengboche for the afternoon prayers and cake at the bakery. He reports that this morning they could see what appeared to be 7 folks climbing to the summit on Ama Dablam, and 3 tents at Camp 3. Hopefully the early season groups are able to get to the summit and the mountain is a bit less crowded when we get there!
