49th day of the
Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Camp 2 (6,500m) Last preparations for the final attack.
Some nervousness and
anxiety is always normal before an important decision. That is why our
day couldn't be different. We decided, my dear friends, that we will
start our final attack to the summit tomorrow, encouraged by the weather
forecast and the desire of getting fast high up the two biggest
mountains of the world, Everest (8,848m) and Lhotse (8,501m).
We'll have three to
five days of intense activity, when we intend to climb Everest first,
and then Lhotse. We are going to need all your support to commemorate
this way the International Year of the Mountains.
We pursue the
achievement of one of the greatest challenges of the world, carrying
proudly on our chests the colors of the Brazilian flag.
During the summit
attack, we will have periodic updates on line, for you to follow us
every moment of our adventure!

Activities at Base Camp are as intense as those of the team in the
mountain. We started to move the radio antenna and some other things to
follow the team's performance and to transmit to you in Brazil.
