In delayed reporting from
Nanga Parbat's Base Camp
Dear friends, I send a hug
from BC, while we continue our mandatory rest waiting for good weather.
Today it has been a better
day in that sense, it only rained a little in the morning and by the afternoon
we've had a partially clear sky (like the forecasts say, but they are never
right, by the way). This has let us enjoy the sun from time to time.
The note of the day,
Wednesday, is that all the Pakistanis from the Diamir Vally (Diamirians) who
are working for the different expeditions as cooks, kitchen aids, high
altitude porters, among other things, had a agreed to gather to prepare a two
goat barbecue, sacrificed in the honor of all the members of the expeditions,
with the objective of wishing us good luck in our illusion to reach the summit
of Nanga Parbat. It has been a beautiful gesture of confraternity and love
from our Diamirian friends and collaborators. Tomorrow I will tell you more
details about this particular meeting.
About the weather, we have
news that the next weekend looks good, a situation that we will confirm
tomorrow with another report. When we have this panorama clear I will share
our plan of action with you.
Until then, a fraternal hug
from BC in Nanga Parbat.
