 Hello from Bolivia! This is the group “Que pasa” and Luda Korobeshko. Today we woke up in a wonderful eco-hotel in the religious center of the Incan empire - on the island of the Sun. After drinking rejuvenating water from the magical source of the Incas and rejuvenated, we sailed to the island of the Moon. There we examined the ruins of the ancient temple. Here, beautiful young girls were brought up to 16 years old, then they were sacrificed to the gods or married to noble Incas. To whom it was lucky.

 Then we got to a floating island (Uros tribes still live on similar islands made of their reeds), where we caught fish and had lunch.

Further in the program there was a visit to the Temple of Copacabana, where locals  priests consecrate newly purchased cars. And in the evening, we moved to the Casa Blanca shelter at 4700, already on the slopes of Huayna Potosi.

Hi 7 Summits! Welcome to Antarctica, Mount Vinson High Camp. Now we have such a wind, bad weather. Everyone is sitting on tents, hiding. I don’t even know what people will do?

Dmitry Ermakov, guide of the 7 Summits Club  from Tanzania:

7 Summits, hello! This is Dmitry Ermakov from the summit of Kilimanjaro. Today, Fedor Konyukhov’s group climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, on Uhuru peak. One member got sick, and Anna and Alexander were able to reach only Stella Point. But, in principle, in such conditions as the weather was, it is a victory. Everything is fine with us, we are going down.

Almost all night the wind was so strong that it knocked down. Including even at the top there were strong gusts of wind. In fact, for all my years of being here on Kilimanjaro, I was for the first time at the top in such weather. But, thank God, everything is fine and everything worked out!

 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.
