Reading Tom Sawyer

Called up home. Mom not well. Everest shines in the distance. A potential summit day.

It seems the Dutch guy saw 9 people on the ridge. Certificates were to be made at the office of the Liasion Officer indicating the height everyone has reached.

Checked mail – many assume I have summited, the newspapers have made a big mistake.

Read a bit of Tom Sawyer.
