The photo and video material after an expedition is huge in my case. My cameras go all the time and the cleanup takes time. Going through all photos from Mt Everst and also the entire journey refreshes all memories from this adventure. It feels strange to write this at the same time when the remaining team still is waiting for the proper weather to summit.
