 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.

Orizaba. 25.10. We moved into a luxury lodge Solteras, under La Malinche. On the way we stopped at the pyramid in Cholula. The pyramid is considered the largest in the World in volume, not in height. Its height is 66 meters, in terms of 450x450 meters. The pyramid was built from the third century BC to the 8th century ad. Then, for unexplained reasons, it ceased to be used and fell into disrepair. On the top of the pyramid in 1570 the conquistadors built a Catholic church.

Orizaba. 26.10. Today it was an acclimatization day we climbed the summit of La Malinche. It rains here every day after lunch. Today was no exception. Mikhail managed to reach the top, Alla climbed at 1100 meters, which is very good for acclimatization.
