This is just a short post to bring to your attention the latest posting from a young guy, Alex Staniforth, from Cheshire in England who will be returning home soon after a second attempt at scaling Everest. Last year Alex was frustrated by politics and had to return with his dreams in tatters but undaunted. This year the expedition was hit by natural disaster, as was much of the region. Alex writes of his experience as an avalanche tore through him and his party; but they, as he acknowledges, are the lucky ones. Many thousands of lives have been lost in the earthquake that shook Nepal.
