I has been a crazy week. I've gone from extreme and absolute loneliness, to integrate myself into the society, making a bath of crowds at all levels. Family, friends, media, work.... All at the same time and in a very intense way.
Few days ago I was featuring all the time I wanted, being the only one who managed it, and without any pressure from anyone, and now I have a radical agenda absolutely saturated, without having time even to read mails or answer phone calls, and grazing near that concept which was totally parked for me in Antarctica, which we call 'stress'.
A busy but very interesting week. But fortunately, this has been for very positive reasons, because the goal achieved had an enormous impact on all levels.
During this week I have been about 10 times on television, I've been on various TV news both Catalan and around Spain, there have benn published articles and interviews in a pile of newspapers in all the country, I have spoken at major radio stations in the Spain, I have received all comments by mail, the website or by phone, and so on. Even the President of the Catalan Government congratulated me, and he will make an official reception for me on Tuesday day 17.
I can not be more grateful for having received so many compliments and public recognition. But what it has make me more happy, more than the amount of support received and media coverage, is that almost at all levels, they have placed more emphasis on values, attitudes, and the fruit of the efforts, over the purely sporting challenge or endurance of the Antarctic voyage. I believe that part of the success of this project has been because there is many people who think to be clear about certain behaviors and attitudes in life is critical to advancing on our projects and to evolve and improve as individuals and as a society. And I'm proud that my small contribution through this adventure, has been reflected or has served as an example in this whole approach.
