Good to hear from you . All is well - Tashi Tenzing
expeditions party is 2 person only - Ms Klara Polackova - she is climbing with

Cho Oyu with me last year and she is ready to hit Everest . I am going for the
last time to climb my beloved Chomolungma from the Tibet side and its
important to me as my family and my sherpa community started their climbing
career and today there the sherpas are the masters of Everest . And not the
least this climb is dedicated to the Nepalese people that we have peace and
stability and may the people of nepal enjoy the prosperity and good future in
the new govt. After so many years of un rest.
