Paiju (3370 meters) 13th day of the expedition K2 2000.

When we woke today we were welcomed by a beautiful day with a blue sky and all around us mountains full of snow. We hope this weather follows us to base camp but we realistically know that there will be changes, bad weather, as is the pattern in the Karakoram. 

Today is a rest  day for us, mainly, for the porters. After Paiju, we'll go in  Glacial Baltoro. So,  they'll have enough  time to prepare their chapati (bread), because we'll be on the ice and they won't be able to make fire with wood ( it's need  to burn the chapati on fire to be good.)

The porters also take advantage of the  day to relax and at night they join in teams of more than 100 men, forming a big circle, where, inside, they dance alone or in couples, accompanying  the beats of a improvised drum.  We can have a good time, too.

To take all our load to the base, we have exactly 143 porters. But, as in Paiju we are gathered with others 2 expeditions, the numbers of the porters is over 300.

I apologize by  my short messages While I'm  walking , I can't recharge batteries, so it's  need to be short.

Project K2 is sponsored by O Boticαrio, TAM, Net Vνrtua and SportsJα.

Update: 14,200' Camp on Mount McKinley; There was more heavy snow but the forecast for tomorrow is good and we plan to move to 17,000'. This is a difficult day with a climb of a 2000' head wall after which we will be on a very exposed ridge. We MUST get it right! This was reinforced in our minds when an Armenian climber fell yesterday at 17,000' and was helicoptered out at midnight yesterday.

Power for the computer has died and we are unable to send or receive emails. Thanks to all who have sent messages of encouragement. These are much appreciated even 'though we are unable to reply.

PS: Expect a Summit Attempt on Thursday or Friday !
