Lyudmila Korobeshko, director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Mexico:

Greetings from Mexico from Lyudmila Korobeshko and the Nahui group! Yesterday we spent a hard night at the Orizaba Base Camp - a storm raged all night, the wind shook our tents. In the morning everything was covered with snow. And the snow continued to fall. A little sad, after lunch we went to the assault camp at 4700. The weather has not improved. The strong wind and snow continued. But the forecast promised a weakening of the wind and the end of precipitation after midnight. At one o'clock we woke up to the sounds of heavy snowfall.  We were sad, but we decided not to change our plans. At 2 am we went out to climb.  By 4 a.m., the snowfall had stopped. But not the wind. And the cold was terrible. Nevertheless, at 8 a.m. our team reached the top of the highest volcano in North America.

By lunchtime we were already in Zoapan, and now we are heading to Mexico City to continue the cultural program. Pyramids and butterflies are waiting for us.

Lyudmila Korobeshko, Director of the 7 Summits Club and group guide, from Mexico:

Greetings from Mexico, from Lyudmila Korobeshko and a new group on Orizaba called "Tacos" (former "Cacas" on Kilimanjaro)! This morning, finally, the whole group came to Mexico City and we immediately went to explore this 36-million city.

In half a day we managed to explore the historical center of Mexico City, visit several churches, visit the largest cathedral in Latin America, found the house of Count Orizaba, visited the sculpture museum of the richest Mexican Carlos Slim, listened to the history of the conquest of Mexico by Cortez, refreshed the details of the struggle for independence, remembered the Mexican revolution, which almost coincided with ours. With some surprise, we recalled that about half of the current territory of the United States once belonged to Mexico. We listened to stories about the blood sacrifices of the Aztecs, learned the recipe for soup made from human flesh (yes, the Aztecs were also cannibals, like our good friends the Papuans).

At sunset, we went boating on the Xochimilco canals to the Mariachi songs.

Tomorrow we leave Mexico City and head to the largest pyramid in the world! Can you guess what it's called?

P.S. Many thanks to our wonderful guide to Mexico City - Natalia Pushkareva!

Yesterday, the 7 Summits Club welcomed our friends famous explorer Fyodor Konyukhov and his son Oscar Konyukhov. And we have now amazing news! In August, Fyodor goes on Kazbek with our 7 Summits Club and with his friends. You can join, but upon prior request. Vladimir Kotlyar has already applied for the role of a guide in this group and has been previously approved.

We discussed the possible participation of the Russian team under the leadership of Fyodor Konyukhov in the Jules Verne Cup (the fastest prestigious sailing race, you need to go around the World in less than 80 days). We will jointly look for finances and assemble a team.

Fyodor blessed Volodya Kotlyar and Alex Abramov for the fulfillment of the project "14 eight-thousandth". He believes that this project is very important for raising the prestige of Russia. After all, no Russian climber has done this project yet. Sergey Bogomolov is the closest (13 out of 14). Everyone got a tremendous boost of energy. Fyodor Konyukhov is very inspiring!

And also we received an invitation to the exhibition of paintings by Fyodor Konyukhov "Journey of a Lifetime" from February 3 at the Zurab Tsereteli Gallery.
