The summit is in view. Our nerves and fears and anxiety may be coming to head as we see where we have to go TOMORROW (actually tonight!). But we must stay focussed (and hydrated) today. One step at a time. Pole, pole. (Slowly, slowly in Swahili) We have read about and trained for this. Now, we have to dig deep and just do it. We have a long day ahead!
