I felt very good after yesterday’s successful summit day! The feeling got even better when we descended off the mountain and checked into a small hotel offering luxuries, including a clean toilet, a warm shower and cold cans of Coca-Cola!
In the evening, we had a nice dinner together to celebrate the successful trip. Both of the teammates that had not joined the summit bid showed great character by joining in the celebration despite missing out on the summit.
Our Russian cook, Liza showed up in a leopard print dress and a guitar, singing Russian songs in between karaoke songs from Elena, a representative of the company handling our logistics in Russia. In the mayhem, Wilf lost his camera.
