  Cho Oyu Team Preps at ABC

05 May 2014 -

It's been the first perfect shiny day at ABC (advance base camp). We are all fine, and relax in our well set basecamp. Food is great and it helps in the way that encourages everyone to eat as much as we can.

Tomorrow we will perform a Puja. It's an essential part of all the trips in the Himalaya. Dorje, our cook will perform the ceremony, following all the mantras in his well kept sacred book. Tomorrow it will be a day of celebrations. It will be the day when we all be blessed in order to climb the Turquoise Goddess.

The route is well set up to C2, and today I was discussing with other leaders how we could contribute to this difficult and hard task. We are welcomed in other camps and between everyone of us, we will make this route a safe passage for everyone.

There is a book of mine awaiting to be read. Most of members have already accomplish this duty, I can see them relax and chilling out under the sun.

From ABC I hope you're having a great time as we do here. Sincerely, Angel.
