 Ludmila Korobeshko, a group guide:  

Hello from Mexico! Our team changed its name and became known as the "Group virus." First, Nikolai Senior fell ill, before climbing La Malinche. It turns out that in the morning he had a temperature of 38, but he decided that it was nothing. And even climbed to the top, but exclusively on moral-volitional...

 The next day, December 31, we went to Orizaba Base Camp already without Nikolai. We celebrated the New Year with turkey, red caviar and red wine. The forecast for the night from 1th to 2th, when according to the plan we were supposed to have an assault, was bad - the wind is 60 km / h. Therefore, we started immediately on New Year's Eve.

We climbed, though very slowly - nevertheless, 1,500 m of drop and the virus was felt. We all admired the courage of Ania, who from the very beginning was very hard to go. But in 11 hours we quietly reached the summit with her. We descended into the camp already in the dark.

Now a well-deserved rest started: pyramids, cacti, tequila. By the way, cacti can be delicious.

Ludmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and a guide of group:

 Hello from Mexico! Today, December 28, the entire team gathered in Mexico City.

After checking the equipment, we went to explore the largest Spanish-speaking city on Earth. First of all, we visited Grasshopper Hill (Chapultepec), where the beautiful Chapultepec castle is located.

Then we wandered around the grand expositions of the Anthropological Museum. We watched as the local Indians fell, whirling around  in a dance. And even participated in simpler, but no less colorful dances with fire.

 With fights we made our way to the central square of Sokalo (they say the second in the world after the Red Square). With fights we retreated back home. Now we relax before the start of the sports program.

Ludmila Korobeshko, Director of 7 Peaks Club and group guide:

Hello from Papua! Perhaps this is the last one. Tomorrow we're flying home, and today we were having a blast in Papua. We visited mudmen, hulimen, skeletonmen. With each of these tribes we sang and danced. Then we participated in the preparation of a special dish "Mumu" - thus, we were given a great honor.

 We also shot with bows and spears, visited the mausoleum with skulls, and met the family of the chief of the village of Paya, whose members appeared to us in a very naked form. Probably, it is also a sign of great respect for us...

 In General, we leave this hospitable country with a lot of pleasant impressions and photos. We promised local to return on their festivals. They invited us very much.

Hello from Papua New Guinea! Today is the final day of the program. In the morning we went to see the birds, which, alas, because of the rain did not want to show up. Then we walked through the forest with orchids. And then the Central event of the day happened – we visited the village of Paia. There we were given a solemn reception-baked pig, danced and sang.

Greetings from Papua New Guinea from “the intrepid conquerors” of Giluwe!  Today we had a cultural day. First we visited mudmen (clay people with pots on their heads). First they tried to intimidate us, then we did it of them. Then we danced in Panka Village with hoolimen. In the end we stopped at the local market, bought betel nuts and tried them. That was awesome! Still under the impression...

Ludmila Korobeshko: Yesterday morning, the 7 Summits Club team climbed to the top of Australia's and Oceania's highest volcano, Mount Giluwe.  The summit was made by all members of the expedition and a group of local Papuans.  They are kind and very nice people. And they are not cannibals. Papuans went with us to the top, sang songs by the fire, mixed mud – so, they had a great time in the campaign on Giluve!

Tomorrow our cultural program begins - a visit to the local tribes.

Ludmila Korobeshko from Hong Kong. The expedition to Papua New Guinea on the volcano Giluwe started. More precisely, I have already started from Moscow towards the island of Papua. A 10-hour docking in Hong Kong suddenly turned into a pleasant adventure. Deciding to visit the world's largest bronze statue of Buddha on a hill near the airport, I got almost in the "Avatar".  There are numerous picturesque hills, dozens of trekking routes, often almost deserted. I could not resist and climbed to the top of one hill, which reminded me of our Pyatigorsk laccoliths. It is exactly opposite the Buddha statue. The views are stunning-rugged coves, Islands, hills, rhododendrons, birds-butterflies-flowers. Plus all sorts of pagodas, temples, large and small…
