Everest Base Camp 2010 • 11/17/2010 7:15:16 AM Ivan Filippov - Full circle
Good afternoon, this is Ivan Filippov from the Summits of Hope. Just gonna report to you that we’ve come full circle. We’re back at Lukla, this is exactly where we started our trek to base camp, where we took our first steps, and today at about 3 pm we finished back here. It’s been a remarkable journey shared with an incredible team. I couldn’t be more proud of this group. The team of porters that we have loved, that have lugged our luggage and gear, made sure that every meal and small detail was accounted for and ready for us in every town, um, that was awesome. Here’s to you, they did an unbelievable job. It’s a bittersweet feeling. On one hand we can’t wait to get home to our loved ones of course and share this experience, yet we leave behind an incredible memory and lots of friends we’ve made on the way. My heart goes out to the kids at BC Children’s Hospital and also to the children of Nepal. Remember, we all have a mountain to climb. This journey we’ve been on is just the beginning of something special. It’s been an incredible experience and we look forward to seeing everybody. Have a good night. Bye.
