The weather with the team is poor but okay for the acclimatise phase, while in the UK, we are all being treated to a heat wave!
Wishing the team a good rest after a few days climbing. Apologies for the lack of photos!
This simple blog gives informal updates of some of our activities. For information about being in the outdoors with myself or other qualified IFMGA guides who work with me, or for industrial work at height feel free to contact me - email: firstname.lastname@example.org
|It may be the face I can't forget, the trace of pleasure or regret|
may be the treasure or the price I have to pay
May be the song that summer sings, maybe the chill that autumn brings
Maybe a thousand different things with in the measure of a day
|Maybe the beauty and the beast, maybe a famine or a feast|
May turn each day into a heaven or a hell,
Maybe the mirror of my dreams, a smile reflected in a stream
She may be not what she seems inside her shell.
