One of my friends is still stuck on Mount Everest in the aftermath of the earthquake and avalanche that shook Kathmandu, the mountain and then the world on the 25th of April this year. Their expedition is still deciding whether they should summit or not, based on the condition of the South route. Ice doctors, who are the Sherpa’s who maintains the route, are still on a reconnaissance mission to determine whether it is even possible at this stage.
In the mean time we wait in anticipation for any news on their decision and whatever the outcome, we wish them the best of luck, but more importantly, a safe return. It was his birthday yesterday, and the man still has a strong mind and an unrelenting spirit.
His only thinking about The Climb as sung by Miley Cyrus.
PS – Don’t you also miss the good old Miley?
