My flag, camera and banners were in a bag pack with a guide and he was nowhere to be seen. We waited for about 15 min freezing and suddenly two figures appeared from the mist. I instantly asked the lady to take a pic of mine there. She wonderfully agreed! So there she was and her guide taking my picture. I thanked her and left as quickly as I could…” In the long message Nisha talks about meeting fellow mountaineers and the being a proud Nepali.
