In 1985 I started very early in the morning after a night in which the gokyo didi's performed a "lata" tourist cabaret.Great vieuws on the top.Off course Everest cs.But most impressive to me,raising like a sharkfin from the clouds,to the south Jobo Labsan.

The mountain I first saw in the stripbooks of Paquito Cosandrey,better known as Cosey.

Second time in 1987 I arrived at the the top together with my long time friend Frits Raaphorst who managed te get there after a nearly fatal case of "Delhi Belly" in Katmandu.After his remarkeble recovery he managed the clearance of the lukla airstrip with a lot of israeli guys.Giving him the impression he was back in his kibbutz years.
