Saturday, Dear friends of
Ecuador and the world.
I send warm greetings from
this special and cozy BC. Yesterday, Friday night, I was back after
installing equipment along with other friends of the other expeditions, on the
passage between C1 to C2. The location of C2 in on the edge of an impressive
ridge, but there is other place for it! For now I sent a short summary of
what happened in these three days and I promise to send a chronicle of my
ascent from C1 to C2. I am taking a well deserved rest today and I will start
again on Monday, as if opening my office, with the job of continue installing
Thursday, June 23: Thank GOD,
a wonderful weather, the mountain is still getting cleaner and avalanches fall
during the whole day but without compromising our ascent route. At six in the
afternoon Hassan and I (a Pakistani carrier of our expedition) left from BC to
Camp 1, with the purpose of leaving from there to C2 in the early morning.
From here, at the other side
of the Equator, a big hug.
