The cameraman and the
journalist will be able to leave Katmandu next Saturday in the afternoon.
The members of the
Andalucia Everest Expedition, Pedro Lopez and Juan Antonio Huisa are still
in Advanced Base Camp, acclimatizing at an altitude mark of 6,400 meters and
with some symptoms of mountain sickness. The two Andalucian mountain
climbers will remain at least one more day at ABC before doing any other
attack to the successive camps.
If everything goes fine, the
climbers will be fit to face the attack to the summit on the third week of
May. The date everybody agrees upon coincides with the full moon of May.
On the other hand, journalist
Javier Blazquez and cameraman Daniel Bueno have been able to setup their
return trip from the capital of Nepal for next Saturday in the afternoon, so
they could arrive to Madrid Sunday morning, but they still have no connecting
flight to continue their trip to Sevilla.
In Nepal the situation seems
to be back to normal and the life in the city is more or less normal, with the
omnipresent and numerous military presence in every corner and in the streets,
but with open stores and the usual chaotic traffic. Today, it was a day for
pacific politic meetings for different parties and since two days ago there
are no revolts or marches, gas can be bought and downtown has its usual noise
of ambulant salesmen, tourists and taxis.
