  Cho Oyu Team Expects to Summit this Weekend

21 May 2014 -

There is an atmosphere of excitement and anxiety in the air, combined with the joy of finally leaving ABC on our final push.

Everyone awoke late, packed up with all the tranquility in the world and then made their own way to the dinning tent. I guess any Orchestra director would be in a hurry before directing a classic masterpiece of all times. I can hear far at the distance "The ride of Valkyrie" and I can imagine the whole team climbing the final plateau.

Everyone has packed and left camp already. As always I await for everyone to leave and dedicate a bit of time to myself to put in words what I feel. I hope these lines will entertain you.

I live this moment with the same intensity of the members. I charge on my shoulders the responsibility of knowing I have the director's wand and by now my heart beats in an allegro rhythm. Our Cho Oyu Opera is in the final act and we have to do our best and give our best to have upon return the welcome back and celebration we deserve, coming from ourselves to ourselves.

The weather forecast is excellent, so we are expecting to summit on 23th midday. There will be no contact until we return to ABC on 24th afternoon Nepal time.

Please send good vibes and energy to all of us, over there, closer to heaven - we will get it without interference!
