Yura called today at about 10 am to check in and share how he was. It has not been easy for him to sit still in Periche, a tiny village at about 4000 meters. Being with the same people in the same dining hall is not that entertaining, but ” resting” and “waiting for the weather” are the two activities that Yura “loves” the most in his life. Those who knows him personally would really understand what it means for him to relax and be still… He is doing really good though and even promised to meditate with some of the very powerful audio recordings that were strategically placed on his Ipod exactly for such time. We also sent him some breezing yoga exercises that help deepen his breezing patterns and strengthen the mind before the last push for the summit.

The plan for tomorrow is to start moving up the trek and reach the base camp within two days. It will take 2 days to get to the base camp where the group will be waiting for the summit opportunity. On his way up he will stay one night at Lobuche and continue up to the camp the next morning. Lobuche is another tiny village with a nicely decorated pleasant lodge that has a very limited space for the trekkers and the climbers. It gets booked pretty fast and the chances to book a room on a spot are very slim.

The group will check with the lodge and depending on the space available will stay another day in Periche or start its march to BC tomorrow.

Yura is grateful for all your loving thoughts, comments to the blog and e-mails flowing his way. He really feels your support and love and he asked me to send you his deep gratitude for keeping him in your thoughts and seeing him successfully moving forward.
