In memory of Pablo Segovia

For those of you who did not know him, Pablo Segovia was KE's Mr Fixit in Kathmandu during the latter half of the 1990's. Pablo who was born and grew up in Mendoza, Argentina, moved to Cusco as a young man and adopted the place as his home. He became a well known rafting guide and trek leader in Peru and then transferred these skills to Nepal working first for Sherpa and then KE Adventure Travel. At the end of the 90's, as Maoism in Nepal was reaching its ugly climax, Pablo left Kathmandu and returned to his adopted home of Cusco. He continued his relationship with KE Adventure working there for Tambo Treks.

Around the time he left Kathmandu, Pablo was diagnosed with Hepatitis 'C'. However the disease went into remission and Pablo continued a happy healthy life until very recently when he was diagnosed as having a tumour on his liver. The end came very quickly and he died peacefully in his sleep on on the 26th October. Those who knew Pablo will understand the significance of the facts that for the last week of his illness he was looked-after and cared-for by four beautiful women including his girlfriend Lillian and his ex wife Holly, and he died only five weeks after leading his last trip.

We are sure that many of you will have fond memories of Pablo either as your trek leader or in Kathmandu as a friendly face when coming back from a hard trip. No doubt some of you will have shared a drink or two in a favourite bar in Kathmandu or Cusco.

Everyone who met him could not fail to be touched by his generosity of spirit and his larger than life presence. A light has certainly gone out in the world.
