Lyudmila Korobeshko, a guide of the 7 Summits Club, director of the company, from Punta Arenas (Chile):
Greetings to all from the edge of the world from Punta Arenas! We decided to call ourselves "7 nations army" - we counted representatives of so many countries in our group. Although Sherpas will still join us in Antarctica… Today we have finally gathered in full force. We bought everything we needed. Three times we got caught in the rain, two times we were almost blown away by a hurricane and miraculously did not get burned – that is, we learned all the charms of the changeable weather of Punta Arenas.
We're putting all our stuff on the plane tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow we hope to fly to Antarctica, where Volodya Kotlyar should be waiting for us. He came to the South Pole with a group today.
Happy New Year to everyone!
The guides of the 7 Summits Club Alexander Dorozhukov and Lyudmila Korobeshko.
