Sergi Mingote Everest Expedition

Sergi Mingote, a mountain climber, is attempting "the greater challenge of his race: to reach the ceiling of the world without supplemental  oxygen and by the difficult North Face route, and he plans to do this alone!" Sergi was born in Parets del Valles, Barcelona in 1971. 

Dispatch: May 3:  Physical recovery is going OK.

"I have talked to the media and I have realized the impact of the expedition" " We are waiting for the 10th, the day the moon phase changes, and there can be a change in the weather".

This day has been good to continue with my physical recovery, which I need after a summit attempt.  Food helps a lot to recover strength.  I have eaten a great deal of carbohydrates.  The problems with my throat, due to the intense cold endured during ascent, have almost disappeared.

The day has been beneficial for the media.  Now that I am here, a lot of media channels have been in contact with me.  The conversations with them have been useful to realize the impact that this expedition is

They have let me know that a lot of people are following me through my web page and through different newspapers.  Personally, knowing all this has given me incredible motivation.  I have realized that the attempt to get to the summit has been highly appreciated by all the fans.  As I have told you before, I am here with members of different expeditions (TVE technicians, Eresmas, Retevisiσn). We share long chats, experiences, meals, tea.  Fellowship at the place is good.  Less than an hour ago, our friends of "Al filo de lo imposible" who are up, said their generator was broken.  Mine was up there and I have offered it to them.

The weather is still unstable, we are still waiting for the 10th, the day the moon phase changes, and it is said that when the moon changes, there is a change in the weather, which can be for better or for worst...
