It's hard to put it in words. The wound is still fresh and it's hard not to get emotional.

On April 24 I left C2 with Marek. Few meters under the summit Marek decided to return and started to descend on fix ropes. On my way down from the summit I stopped at our C2. It was buried under the snow. Marek wasn't there. I found his ice awe and one glove.

We reached the BC (5300m) under Shisha Pangma on Saturday the 14th of April. It is really nice here. No rubbish! Not as in Cho Oyu BC. We had some problems with yakmen, they didn't want to continue in a deeper snow, but we persuaded them by some extra dollars.

Today I came with Marek in ABC in 5.630m. I feel very good, I just still get out of breath. Marek has headache but as he says he knows that feeling and will feel fine after some sleep. Duce has no problems but he decided not to join us before the evening or tomorrow.

Finally Tibet. Yesterday we were in Nyalam and made our first acclimatization hill above the village. As Duce says - tibetian classic: dirt, mess, communism.

15 March 2007

Today we went to Thamel. It's the biggest bazaar in Kathmandu. We were looking for altitude boots, down jackets,... everything we need and have in cargo. But we didn't find boots. The number 46 is taboo here.


Dodo 14.3.2007
14 March 2007

Today the trekkers left for Tibet, we keep waiting for cargo. Palo went to the doctor again and it seems he has to stay in Kathmandu five more days. Yesterday we celebrated his birthday in a friendly bar. The rest of us will go to Tibet perhaps tomorrow. But everything depends on our cargo.

I am writing from the hotel Manaslu in center of Kathmandu. Yesterday we had dinner in Pasangs house. Nice house, pleasant wife, great son, cat Limba and dog. Nice evening. I tried "chang" for the first time. It's rice bear. First glass nothing special but the rest of them...
