The Mexican climbers who are in the Mexican - Canadian expedition to Everest, Luis, Espinoza, Juan Pablo Gómez, Javier Ochoa, José Luis Abreu and Pedro flew yesterday to Lucla, from where they will begin their approach trek to Everest Base Camp.  Andrés Delgado, Alejandro Ochoa and Marta Ostos will take a flight on the 23rd to meet them in Namche Bazar.
