K2/Broad Peak Summer 2009: Islamabad

After a long flight it is great to be back in Islamabad, not long since mid September when I last left after the Rupal Face Expedition, luckily I enjoyed my first meal here at my favorite BBQ restaurant. As soon as I arrived at the hotel I was reminded of how friendly and excited people here are to have tourists.
Chris - the leader of the Broad Peak section of the Field Touring double header, and I hung out sorting gear, dealing with some logistics and chatting to Phil Crampton in the hotel lobby for a while as other climbers filtered in and out all day. Team members start arriving tonight, so all is on track.
