Coming Home - the Right Decision
Sarah on pass to Nangpa LaThis will be my last email from the Base Camp computer - there is very busy packing all around me and this machine will get boxed up in an hour or so.
Apparently a small group of climbers went high on the mountain yesterday - these guys are incredibly experienced as they have climbed 12 of the 14 peaks over 8000 metres. Apparently they turned back well before the summit as they regarded the conditions to be too dangerous. So that really tells you how bad it is up there. There is one final party who apparently will try to get to the top but they are nutters who have ignored the advice of their expedition leader. Let's see if they survive.
So we leave first thing tomorrow morning bound for the border town of Zangmu. The day after that we will be in the bustling streets of Kathmandu at the height of the tourist season - it feels like a pretty fast transition sitting here in the beauty of a mountain ampitheatre! Still, I am really looking forward to a shower and a real bed.
Thanks so much to all for your messages of support they have an incredible help and are something to be cherished.
Wishing you all a life of inspiration and adventure.
