It’s another surreal scene at Base Camp this week, with the Chinese providing satellite TV to the entertainment of the teams gathered there. Following the live broadcast from the mountain from two episodes ago, and the banquet from last week, everyone settles in for a bit of TV, just like back home. How the Chinese managed to bring all those TV’s to Base Camp is beyond me. Jon says there were more than a dozen in the Chinese camp, and not just small, portable TVs. Large, full size console sets.
It’s interesting and kind of funny to see these people mesmerized by television, which they obviously haven’t seen in weeks, when they have such a stunning view right outside the tent. This is another fun episode that shows a slice of life at Base Camp, but Jon promises we’ll get back to climbing soon. Remember, this is “An Almost Unabridged Expedition Experience”, so you get to see it all. 🙂
