Hi Everyone. I’ve started the expedition. I spent a day in Union Glacier when I got here with ALE at their camp before being dropped at my start point this evening. It’s very windy outside but I’m glad I’ve started. I’ll be doing daily blogs while I’m on the ice and I’d like to dedicate each day to those who have helped me along the way.
So today I want to dedicate this blog to my Baba ji (my grandad). He passed away a few years ago now but lived until he was almost 100 years old. He raised me when I was younger, My memories of him are him walking me to school which was literally across the road and he used to eat chyawanprash every evening. He would sometimes let me have a little, I loved the sweet taste of it.
A lot of the time in our community, girls and women are seen as less than boys/men but he never made me feel that way. To my Baba Ji, just like you did last time, I hope you are watching down on me again. That is all for tonight.
