  Cho Oyu Team Summits!

24 May 2014 -

Why do we climb mountains? (Easy answer): Because we like them How do we climb them? Answer: Placing a foot in front of the other, once and once more..

Yesterday we placed a foot in front of the other, many many times, until we could not do it anymore.
At 10:30 Nepal time, the slope turned flat, and there were nothing else to be climbed. We were at the highest point in the region, and we could touch the sky with our bare hands.

Incredibly these moments are lived either with Intensity and Neutrality or Emotion and Passion. - In this expedition, the summit was lived such the first type. We could barely spend 10 minutes on the top, because of the clouds and wind approaching us, and pushing us to descend. The Turquoise Goddess allowed us to climb her, thus at that time she was pushing us to descend.

We are leaving ABC by now trekking to Diablum to take a jeep to Zhangmu right at the border with Nepal.

Tomorrow I promise you pictures. This Dispatch is just to tell you we are all Ok and happy.
