58th day of the 10 Years of
Brazil on Everest Expedition
(5,400m) / Camp 2 (6,400m)
We begin our final attack!
Irivan and I left base camp
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.
Taking the decision to make
an attempt to the summit of Everest was not easy, because nobody has been able
to reach its 8,848m of altitude this year, and mostly, because the weather is
Another factor that left us a
little disappointed was that the Spaniards that are part of our expedition
desisted at the last moment and did not come with us, a shame.
From now on we are going to
make a big current of positive thinking for the winds to calm down, so that
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.
