|In the Sanctuary!|
"It's incredible, but I am here!" I wrote on my diary. 'Here' was Annapurna Base Camp, 4,130 m, the highest place I had ever been. Writing this, I was confortably wrapped in my sleeping bag, warm and content..
|Here I am!!!|
Once arrived and dropped my stuff in the lodge room, I went looking for the Annatoli Boukreev chorten. In my pocket I had something special, carefully kept in a safe place during the travel and the trekking. It was time to deliver it to its final destination.

Suddenly I was allarming hungry! I ran to the lodge and joined the others for the lunch, Lalit included, back from the early climb to the view point.
The sun was quickly gone. I spent the afternoon freezing even in the sleeping bag, and after dinner we had no option but to go to bed, because the porters were set to sleep in the dining room.
It wasn't that cold now. I slept very well, and I woke up listening to a beautiful voice singing outside...
