|I promised Tenzing to show his wonderful lodge near Gosaikunda lakes in Lantang, Nepal. The time is now.|
|Wind and light snow. For our small team, two days of rest at abc after the attempt to reach camp 2 yeasterday. Meanwhile we look the weather forecast and maybe we hope for the next week end.|
Departure at 10 am in direction of "camp 1" with the last thinghs to settle "camp 2" tomorrow.
|It's half past seven in Kodari.|
This is the border with China and Tibet. A strange place.
We arrived yesterday afternoon.
A big chinese truck had an accident. The small road is blocked.
We are waiting our barrels.
|Some pictures of our trek in Lantang.|
|Meanwhile the other guys training theirself on the peaks around these beautiful lakes, i go do down for 500 meters to meet my friend Tenzing that has a nice lodge (hotel mount rest) at Laurivinayak.|
From here you can see a lot of Himalayas peaKs: Manaslu, Annapurna, Lantang Ri.
Tenzing has the only fuel generator around miles. He brings it by his hands (72 kg).
Today we use fuel generator because monsoon doesn't help us with the sola panels.
A good lesson for Tibet.
The tibetan border is quite near, you can understand for the faces and the everyday life.
We are now use computer and satellite modem, near two people are making butter with their hands.
Maybe, two o three century of difference in five meters.
Perhaps it's necessary more time and more space for crazy ideas that for absolutely brilliant projects.
And this of "the highest blog in the world" looks more like a crazy idea that a stroke of genius.
In any case, the countdown for the departure begins.
|The "Buddhist Child Home" in Kathmandu. |
We are guilty of many errors and many faults but our worst crime is abandoning the children, neglecting the fountain of life. Many of the things we need can wait. The child cannot. Right now is the time his bones are being formed, his blood is being made, and his senses are being developed. To him we cannot answer 'Tomorrow.' His name is Today.
