It’s really weird

to see Base Camp reduced to the police building. At this late time of year, there’s no one else here and no reason to be if you’re a climber.

You have to be kind crazy, or you have to want to avoid the tourists, or you have to have grabbed an opportunity when it came, or… you’re smarter than everyone else and you know best, to go to Everest’s Base Camp in the winter.

We, of course, knew best: my next photo book is entitled “Go! It’s winter in Tibet!”
