Jean-Christophe Lafaille Winter Makalu: A message from Katia


A message from Katia Lafaille Wednesday February 1st 2006, 9:00

Today, I’m leaving for Nepal. On Saturday (February 4th ), I will flight over Makalu in an helicopter (exactly as yesterday’s reconnaissance flight). I will look for a sign of my husband in the immensity of Himalaya and I will say him goodbye in my name, in the name of his «little boy» Tom… and in the name of Jérémi. Then I will recover Jean-Christophe’s gear at BC before getting back to Katmandu.

Thank you all for the tribute made in the honour of Jean-Christophe, a dad, a husband, an exceptional alpinist that won’t be replaced.
