5/1/2001 from Gabriel Filippi who attempted
Everest last year with Babu.
dead body was brought back 10 a.m. this morning
to Kathmandu airport. Tons of reporters
were there. One of the King's spokesperson was
there too. A lot of people everywhere, in the
streets, sidewalks, on the top of roofs. People
everywhere. People were walking slowly,
following the cortege. A car was carrying his
brother Dawa and the rest of the family. TV,
radio and newspapers talked about his
death. This is the only thing that people talk
about. It is a national tragedy. Nepal is in
a terrible shock. Friends all over the world
too. Now they all are
praying in the Monastery. The Prime Minister was
expected during the afternoon. The cremation is scheduled
for Thursday in Kathmandu. Babu
and his friends are thankful to everyone who
helped and will continue to help making Babu's
dream a reality.
