Today we flew in Katmandu. We have got the tickets from
Katmandu on 14.11, and from Dakha on 15.11 at 12:20. It means that on 15.11 we
should be in Moscow in the evening: only force major circumstance can prevent
from that plan. Tomorrow there will be a briefing in the Ministry of tourism
We celebrated Valery's birthday in Lukla and treated people
with a pie baked by our cook Pasang. So it turned out, that our expedition
began from my birthday, and successfully came to the end in Valery's birthday.
We have a lot thing to do in Katmandu, I hope we will successfully finish
them; we are ready to all meetings.
Objectively I consider this ascent as a high class
climbing, but not because that we made it. Our forces gradually come back to
us. We are already thinking about new plans. The energy of success is,
certainly, a magic energy. People say, that perfect persons can precisely use
the energy of failure with the same result!? Happy greetings to you all.
