40th Day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Camp 3 (7,300m) - Base Camp (5,400m). Looking for a well deserved rest.

Dear friends who are following the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World:

With great satisfaction I send you today's news, here directly from Base Camp, inside my comfortable tent, with the soothing music of Gilberto Gil (I'm homesick of Bahia!!!).

After exactly one week in higher altitudes, my team and mainly me, are extremely satisfied.  It is possible to sense a big joy from the results, not only from Irivan and Alir, who were with me, but also from Paulo Mαfia, who coordinated all the actions from Base Camp.

In these last seven days, we went back to Camp 1 (6,150m), we installed Camp 2 (6,500m) and, after four days of work on Lhotse's flank, we installed the difficult Camp 3 (7,300m).

We thank God for the success we had.  Weather helped, from the day of the Independence of Brazil, September 7th, each day has been prettier than the one before.  Also we didn't lack enthusiasm to achieve what we had planned, and we even have more disposition after we learned that our enthusiasm spread to other expeditions, who each day wanted to help us more with the task of equipping Lhotse's flank.

I confess I was excited when we got to the location of Camp 3, 7,300m of altitude, not only for being higher than the biggest mountain of North America, the McKinley (6,194m), or for being higher than the biggest mountain of South America, the Aconcαgua (6,959m), but also for being close to the top of Everest and Lhotse, the Top of the World.  I feel the vibration of the green and yellow heart in the chest of each of the climbers of my team.

And with the feeling of the accomplished duty, with this pride in my chest of being a Brazilian climber, we descended today from the heights of the Himalayans, for a well deserved rest in our Base Camp.  

See in today's pictures our Camp 3, with the towers of Lhotse's summit in the background. In the other picture the beautiful view we have from our tents at Camp 3, the big cone shaped mountain is Pumori (7,165m), and behind, Cho Oyu (8,201m).
Namaste!
