Yesterday we came to the National Park Mount Cook, settled on the shores of Lake Pukaki. At 9 a.m., New Zealand time, we made an official visit to the Center of Edmund Hillary, legend of world mountaineering. We are happy that we managed to meet him in Kathmandu in 1997, he left an autograph with his best wishes to command photography. Therefore, this is very important for us visiting the center and museum of Sir Edmund Hillary.
