 BRAZILIAN EVEREST LHOTSE EXPEDITION is sponsored by

O BOTICΑRIO, VOLKSWAGEN and PETROBRΑS

31st day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Camp 1 (6,150m) - Base Camp (5,400m). BELOVED NATION, BRAZIL.

What a beautiful morning we had today!  A blue infinite sky, without a cloud in sight, it was the vision we had when we opened the doors of our tents, on Camp 1.   And cutting this deep blue, the beautiful mountains of the Himalayans.  In the direction of Base Camp, for the first time, Pumori (7,165m) totally showed us its beauty.  And on top of our heads, the West face of Everest and Nuptse (7,861m).  And, absolute lord of all the landscape surrounding us, Lhotse (8,501m), closing the valley at the top side (it is not possible to see the Everest summit from Camp 1).

It was our reward, without a doubt, for the effort of installing Camp 1.  And also, without doubt, the best way to begin the Independence commemorations of Brazil.  Without delay, we opened Our Flag and shot some pictures.

Alir Welner, Irineu Burda, Marcelo Bonga, Paulo Souza and me, are proud to be Brazilians, proud, in this International Year of the Mountains, of having the opportunity to raise the Green and Yellow Flag on the heights of the Himalayans, proud of taking Brazil to the Top of the World.  We thank you for that same pride, for your support, and to our sponsors, for the same pride, for the trust in our team and for crediting the potential of the Brazilian Mountaineers.

From 9 in the morning, carriers and climbers of the Japanese expeditions and the SPCC team started to arrive to Camp 1.  The SPCC team decided to continue opening the path up the glacier, where gigantic crevasses require the use of ladders as bridges to be crossed.

We set everything in order in our tents and started our descent to Base, extremely satisfied for the two nights we slept above 6 thousand meters of altitude, without headaches or any other inconvenience, which proves our acclimatization work is perfect.

From now on, with the open path through the Ice Fall, our activities will be more intense.  We are, soon, going to install Camp 2, where we'll manage what's left of the climb, for Everest as well a for Lhotse.  And we are counting with your support, here on Niclevicz Online.

Today we complete a month, 31 days, far from our families, our friends, our dearest Brazil.  Be sure that our home sickness is big, but our enthusiasm and disposition to take the Brazilian Flag to the Top of the World is greater.

BELOVED NATION, WITH A LOT OF PRIDE, BRAZIL!!!

Namaste!
