Kufstein Sylvester 2003/2004

The Nanga Parbat Research Camp, Part IV

by Mike Gendreyzig, 2004

The Hippie Cook Recommends:
Pancake soup or Semolina dumpling soup
Arranged paprika and salmon
Cordon bleu with add. spinach filling, potatoes
or Cured pork inside bread, dumplings and sour cabbage
or Grilled dear on spit with red cabbage
Semolina dumlings in Glühwein

The New Year gain momentum

As the new year was already welcomed loudly and enthusiastic in Kufstein, the researchers allowed themselves a relaxing day at the Nanga Parbat camp site, strolling around the several huts and woods and sledging the half track, thinly covered with new snow fallen during the night before.

Evening's highlight was Hippie cook's spectacular New Year menu (see right side). Everyone enjoyed the cozy atmosphere and other party guests filled up the mountain hut leaving no chair empty. Close to midnight people moved onto the terrace and right on the beginning of the new year rockets were launched coloring the sky. The last experiment was lighting romantic sparklers. While toasting with champagne and hugging each other, the scientists declared ones own wishes and goals for 2004. After the guests sledged down the dark track through the forest, the scientists group continued playing cards until sandman sent them to their beds.

The remaining two days are summed up quickly: on New Year's day ski enthusiasts went to famous and quite foggy Kitzbühel, so that the group got totally separated. The other day they tested again Hochfügen, enjoying Grilled Tyrolians at the lovely Aar Wirt hut. And the toboggan group flatted once again the icy Aschenbrenner track.


The study of New Year's spectacle is not yet finished and tends to need several more years to discover the complexity and to ultimately explain the phenomenon of the "Sylvesternacht".
