I hope that I finish my project next spring and can make this small or large tribute to all the elderly, to the older ones, who have had such a bad time and are having a bad time and to those have disappeared. I would like to do this little homage of mine next spring by climbing the Dhaulagiri.

He's already conquered 12 of them
