Concur! The site below is to the highest peak in Afghanistan, summited by Afghans in 2009. As beautiful as your post is the idea of what happened in the link was good news in a land in need of good news.

Well done indeed.

I have never much warmed up to sledding sagas, but prefer the romance of ruins and encountering people present or deceased. Ice does not long hold my attention.

Not even Waugh could make much of an Arctic adventure. His almost fatal 1934 trip to Spitzbergen is described in his story “The First Time I Went to the North”.
