 BRAZILIAN EVEREST LHOTSE EXPEDITION is sponsored by

O BOTICΑRIO, VOLKSWAGEN and PETROBRΑS

25th day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Base Camp (5,400m).
Another expedition arrives to climb Lhotse. 

There is nothing like resting on Sunday, after the good progress we had on the Ice Fall yesterday.  And also we would not advance much today, because the job of improvising bridges with aluminum ladders over the crevasses was very slow.  Progress is around 100 to 200m each day, over a very irregular terrain.  When the SPCC personnel came down, we went to them and the reply to our insistent question was that it will take 2 to 3 days to get to the location of Camp 1.

Another expedition arrived today to Base Camp, joining ours and the Japanese, whose chief is Katayama (3 climbers for Everest).  This third expedition, also Japanese, has the objective to climb Lhotse, excellent news for us.  Its chief is Takahasi, and is integrated by 6 climbers and 5 Sherpas (high altitude carriers).

I'd like to tell everybody that the mood in our expedition couldn't be better.  Our team is perfectly geared, sharing a big feeling of friendship and teamwork among us Brazilians, and also with our 6 Sherpas (3 high altitude carriers and 3 of the kitchen team).  We are well acclimatized, without the slightest headache.  We all have good health, without the slightest problem, and our will to install the superior camps is immense. 

Today I send a picture of us at Base Camp, beside our dinning tent, which we also use to store our equipment and food.  Kneeling down are me, Paulo and Bonga.  Alir and Irivan are standing up.

In the other picture there is a view we had this morning of the Ice Fall and our tents at Base.  Every day has been like this, it dawns with a blue sky, and then after lunch the sun is covered by clouds and then it snows a little.  And everyday we feel the weather is improving...

Namaste!
