Dear Tulsi,

I hope that everything with you is alright and that you are in fine health!

I’m sure that the weather in Kathmandu is a lot better than here. I send you this email to greet you and to tell you that everything is alright. The weather is quite bad and we had a lot of bad luck with storms and fresh snow, but everyone is healthy and we still have a good chance to reach the summit.

I especially want to thank you for your staff. I never had any better staff than the guys we are working with now. Both Oom and Ganesh are great cooks. Every meal is fantastic and we are getting really spoiled by their food.  Santa and Rinji are great too. Both are very strong and helpful. Rinji was bit sick yesterday and came down to Basecamp, but he’s better now.  And then Furba: He is really fantastic. Extremely helpful, very strong, always ready to help, to think about the plans, tea break the trail, to organize the trek, BC, the staff, the high camps, etcetera. In short: great!

I am very happy with all of the staff. THANK YOU!

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that we are fine and to thank you for everything you have organized and sending this staff with us.

See you soon!
