Reading The Climb by Anotoli Bourkreev and a favourite quote by him about Everest is
“You have to pace yourself.
Its not who gets up first,
Its who gets up.”
Passing through the slot of islands between Figi and Tonga. Can see an extinct volcanic island, also last week we had two earthquakes in the Tongan trench about 150km from Vavau. Last time I left Tonga a volcano blew up.
