There were 70 of us. We were from different
countries. But we were one family, despite
our different ages, religions, human and
sports experience. We were all equal. Both
the large teams from Russia and Malaysia
and the small but very pretty representative
from Portugal. In a strange way the
expedition has united unique people: an
Orthodox priest and representatives of the
Islamic religion; a 14-year-old schoolboy
from Russia who has just performed his first
parachute jumps and a veteran of the
parachute sport from Holland - a very
experienced female skydiver who has carried out her fifth parachute jump down on the
North Pole; a world-known air-cameraman with 6500 parachute jumps and a journalist
who has done his first tandem parachute jump down on the North Pole. The North
Pole is an element confronting a defenseless human being, and yet we felt our strength
and experienced freedom. Actually the North Pole is one point containing a space
without limits and completely denying the boundaries of time, space and spiritual state.
We were all together and we were happy.
We are sure that we will again be together!
