39th day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Camp 2 (6,500m. of altitude / Camp 3 - 7,300m of altitude) Brazilian Expedition: The first to install Camp 3 (note 2 dispatches today, make sure you check the second one too)

With much happiness we send this message from 7,300m of altitude.

It is now 18h30 local time and temperature is minus 16 degrees Celsius. Alir, Irivan and me are enjoying a spectacular sunset from our tents on Camp 3.

From the vertical slope of Lhotse's flank, we watch below the Valley of Silence in direction to Base Camp, where Pumori stands imponently, and behind its summit, Cho Oyu.

We arrived here at 14h00 on this fourth attack to Lhotse's flank, now with the help of the other two Japanese expeditions, who descended immediately.

We are very happy because weather is optimal, revealing the summits of Everest and Lhotse, and a beautiful blue sky, well above our heads.  We are also happy because Alir, Irivan and me feel in good shape, here at 7,300m of altitude, we are very well and without the least headache.

Palulo Mαfia from Base Camp:  We are impressed by the compliments the Brazilian team is getting from the chiefs of the other expeditions and their Sherpas, for the fact that the 3 Brazilians are opening the route and going in front of the line fixing task.  Congratulations, this initiative shows the capacity and determination of the Brazilian climbers. (Next Dispatch)
Namaste!
