Louisa Zondo wrote:

"Dear MaRiky, On day 11 of the trek - 2 April 2022 - I’m again waking up to the luxurious warmth of an electric blanket and my Nalgene hot-water bottle, at Khumbu Lodge, Namche. After several days without the ability to charge phones or send messages through communication networks, there is a tremendous amount that I could say, however, only a few words are necessary to convey its essence.

"We finally reached Mount Everest Base Camp on our Day 10 of the trek. Aunt Xoli and I were exhilarated! Among other things, I was caught up in the realisation that at that moment I was standing 5364m above sea level, at this place that I had hoped to get to since 2019, before the COVID-19 pandemic intervened. The concrete immediacy of each moment’s walking, challenges and lessons had the effect of disaggregating the trek quite significantly, however arrival at Base Camp brought everything together. In this expansive state, MaRiky, I laid out something of a memorial for you at the Base Camp rock.

"Your beloved wife, Bianca, and children - Jordan and Maik - had sent me off with a few memorabilia. Singing Methodist Xhosa Hymn 259 - Ndinik’amehlo Ndikhangele… I lay out a “Riky Rick…We Multiply” tee-shirt on the rock. Above it was a chain containing: (a) medallion of St Michael - the archangel who among other virtues helps us in our hour of death - as a symbolic representation of Bianca and the kids’ prayers; (b) a St Christopher medallion representing my travel prayers for all of us; and (c) a medallion with a “MaRiky” engraving. The last medallion is the beautiful product of young talented jewellers at the tattoo joint that your friends recently opened up in Braam Square. I laid it as your family’s commitment to carrying forward your legacy of caring for and supporting young people.

"At Base Camp, everything came together in that amazing “contraction-and-expansion” pattern of the universe., MaRiky. All I could do at this point was to keep bowing in gratitude, joy, peace and hope. I could never find the words to clearly set out the depth of awakening that coming to Base Camp and communicating with you through ritual, was to me."

Information reads: "Riky Rick's mom Louisa Zondo has reached Mount Everest Base Camp on day 10 on the trek and leaves a special message for Riky Rick from his wife and family."
