Sunday, we met for breakfast as normal at 7:00, people confirmed that we did actually experience 2 more aftershocks in the night which Laura had felt but was unsure as there didn't seem to be any commotion so just decided she must have dreamt them. Sangam didn't say much, we didn't expect him to but almost wanted him to for reassurance which he did give in advising we would proceed today on our hike. The snow on the ground was thicker, our Shepas stayed close by and the boys even had a snowball fight with them which they enjoyed. We passed a lot of people heading back down the mountain, in fact we seemed to be the only ones going up, they gave us news, that there was a huge avalanche at Everest Base Camp, that about 10 people had died, we couldn't believe it, it all still felt like a dream. Helicopters kept flying over which Sangam advised were to transfer the injured and dead bodies from Base Camp, we would just stop and stand silently watching as they flew over, out of respect I guess as there was nothing more we could do, Laura wrote R.I.P in the snow. The more people we passed, the more full of self doubt Laura felt, Ben and Liam were being positive and wanted to continue, they still wanted to make it to Base Camp but Laura was afraid and confused why Sangam had us carrying on when everyone was turning back, but we realise no one knew which way was the right or safe way to go. We arrived in Lobuche (4900m) at 11:30, and Laura felt at ease, there were lots of of hikers, guides and sherpas here and the buildings were not badly damaged except for 1 which was missing it's entire corner. We drank hot lemon, ate lunch and played cards, at some time there was an aftershock which had everyone outside, there was much more of us inside this time so there was a lot of rushing and pushing, the building that had lost its corner was now missing it's entire side. We continued with our cards, Sangam advised us that they are estimating a earthquake at 15:00 today and a big one around 8 on the scale for tomorrow so we would not continue walking, Base Camp has been closed for the rest of the season so we will return to Lukla, Laura was relieved, the boys were absolutely devastated. We played cards in anticipation the whole afternoon for the estimated earthquake but it never came, we ate tea then went to bed but didn't really sleep, Laura was fearing the awaited earthquake and worrying about having to get out of her sleeping bag, shoes on and outside into the snow, Ben was kept awake by the Sherpas and guides in the bar cheering that they were alive and celebrating the lives of their friends they lost.
