In these days of waiting in
Advanced Base Camp for a definitive attack to the summit of Everest, all of us
have time to think and reflect of why we are here, at the bottom of Everest,
trying to reach the summit. They are reflections and feelings that one way or
another we would like to share with you.
Between each stretch of cable
from our generator, which by the way, thanks to a mechanical tuning we made
here in Advanced Base Camp it looks like it is working again, I had the
opportunity to know and live with really exceptional people; to be part of an
expedition for the first time has let me know a new world of surprises,
efforts, and the rewards after the efforts. I hope to be able to share with
all of you these experiences which, sincerely, I don't know if I will have
words to explain them.
The dream of being on
Everest, of wanting to wake up everyday in Advanced Base Camp has come true.
It shouldn't have been possible without the support of the City of Sant Boi,
of Auto Buigasi Garro S. A., my thanks to all of them.
Living days and days sharing,
working, laughing would not be possible without the teammates that come in
this expedition. This is the most important part of the success of this
The constant memory of my
family, Teresa, Ricard, Marcel and also the family and all the people of Sant
Boi that follow our expedition, gives me courage of giving the last effort to
reach the goal we have dreamt so much.
