today and we are already in our comfortable tent in camp 2, with the hope to
really make our final attack in the next few days. Our hope is to reach the
top of Everest Saturday, if there is no strong wind.

Irivan and I gain altitude each day, until we place the flag of Brazil on the
Top of the World.
We count with your support
now more than ever.
