A guide of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Spirin reports from Tanzania:

Hello everyone from Africa!  Today, on the International Mountaineering Day, our program of climbing Kilimanjaro starts. To begin with, we visited two museums.  We spent an unforgettable hour in the snake museum: we saw black, green and other mambas, graceful cobras, beautiful pythons and other dangerous and not very dangerous snakes. As well as crocodiles of different models and turtles, the oldest of which is already a pensioner -75 years old is no joke. After that, we went to a cool museum dedicated to the culture and life of the Masai. It is very informative, especially the initiation of a man into warriors by circumcising his spear.  In the evening, a delicious dinner and congratulations on the mountaineering holiday were waiting for us at the hotel. The guides of the group are two Alexandrs: Abramov and Spirin.

A Guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from the Elbrus region:

News of the Elbrus region from a new group called "The Gift of Fate". The group arrived in the Elbrus region yesterday, and began to acclimatize. Today we walked along a beautiful forest path to the Ai cafe on Cheget Mountain. It rained all night, so the whole forest was wet and damp. At the same time, when the sun came out in the morning, there was no "steam room". After going up to the Ai cafe, we ordered hychins and chebureks, which we had a snack with, acclimatizing along the way. The return journey took place along a technical road, which was laid for the maintenance of the cable car. Tomorrow we are going up to the refuge National Park, where we will continue preparing for the ascent.

A guide of the 7 Summits Club Andrey Berezin reports from the Elbrus region:

Our group continues acclimatization and preparation for the ascent on Elbrus. Today, in the preparation plans, we made an ascent to the Pastukhov Rocks. Since everything is melting a lot now, the relief of the slope is changing a lot, there are streams and rivulets on the way.  But all this is only up to 4400 meters, above, to the Pastukhov rocks, the slope has hardly changed. After two hours of climbing, the weather began to deteriorate and then all the warm clothes that we took with us to the exit came in handy: down jackets, mittens, and ski masks. After spending about an hour at an altitude of 4500 meters, we took a few photos, after which we went to the refuge, where a delicious lunch was waiting for us.  Tomorrow we rest and prepare for the ascent.  The guides of the group are Andrey Berezin and Dmitry Semenov.
