Update 1/26/03: The team
has established Camp 2....
reporter for the Polish newspaper Rzeczpospolita and
long time EverestNews.com contributor is passing
time by playing cards and singing songs with
families and friends of members of the expedition.
They are lacking "petrol" (fuel) for the generator
which gives them electric power. This is slowing the
the only reporter there (she is the reporter for
the team), is sending dispatches to EverestNews.com
and a Russia site in addition to her newspaper. Both
EverestNews.com and the Russian site receives
Monika's dispatches for Rzeczpospolita (the
newspaper) in English, the Russian site translates
them to Russian. "Scrivanek"
is the Polish to English translator.
Don't worry, when
things heat up or there is breaking News, Monika
will let you know.... We talk on e-mail/sat phone
every couple of days...
