The first Antarctic group of the 7 Summits Club flew to the ice continent after a week delay
Alexander Abramov, President of the 7 Summits Club from Punta Arenas, Chile:
Hurray! The program 7 summits in 7 months started!! Finally, our first group after seven days of waiting for the weather flew to Antarctica. To ski the South pole and climb the Vinson Massif.
We had a great Christmas. Today the whole town was resting. All shops are closed. Tomorrow we are buying products for the second group, which has already started to come to Punta Arenas. The next flight is scheduled for December 29. Onward and upward!
Even I had to kiss the big toe of the Indian's right foot to do it. It is a tradition!
