A well-earned doze under Chomolungma

Seeing Mt Everest for the first time, I got all emotional, had a few tears (which just about froze on my cheeks) and said a little prayer to the Mother Goddess of the Earth (Tibetan/Nepali name for Everest). Phil, being a more practical sort, decides the best thing for it is a nap after 4 hours slogging it to this site - Pethang Ringmo - at very high altitude.
Mt Everest/Chomolungma is the peak on the right, and just to the left of it is Lhotse and in between is the South col.
