Day Thirty-eight: Italians Decide to Head Home

Today was spent resting in base camp from the tremendous effort exerted high on Manaslu the past few days. The Italians decided to pack up and go home today so I was faced with figuring out another agency already in base camp to pay to handle my base camp services so I could make another attempt at the summit. I had dinner with the Andalucian team then went to bed in an electrical storm.
