K2/ Broad Peak Summer 2009: Clients Departing Islamabad

Today was a bit frantic, we managed to get a few clients on the flight to Skardu and tomorrow morning most everybody else will depart by bus to Skardu. Chris, Myself and Dave who is filming will spend one more day in Islamabad as we finalize the permits and then on the 12th we will start the drive.
Although today was very frantic it was the typical hurry up and wait situation. However, it did allow for alot of social time, with visits to the hotel from Ashraf Aman of ATP,  Mohammed Ali and Shujat from Karakoram Magic Mountains and then later dinner with Nazir Sabir. Fun to see old friends, hear the latest Ministry of Tourism and Alpine Club gossip and enjoy great mutton BBQ!
