 Italian expedition Everest/K2 2004 expedition


Updates from Everest camps!

4/30 Everest - base camp: Jet stream is on its way towards the Himalays. Incredibly strong blizzards will hit the Everest, Kanchenjunga and Annapurna areas, starting from this evening. According to weather forecasts at around 7000 (North Col) strong wind should be to avarage 25 m/s around 90 km/h.

5/01 Bergamo - Everest base camp: We overheard some of the conversation between the expedition leader and his vice Soro Dorotei : "Agostino, advanced base camp is finally functioning! It was very hard putting everything at its place but all team members worked with great enthusiasm and this is how we made it!. As you know camp I was set up and in an amazing place. We are taking turns at sleeping at 7000 m to complete acclimatization to high altitudes. The wind doesn't allow us to go further high." Today's news also concerns the birth of Emilia Mondinelli! A beautiful and healthy baby girl (3,5 Kg, 51 Cm) Silvio "Gnaro" Mondinelli's daughter. To celebrate the event Italian typical alpine food was cooked by "Chef "Mario Merelli!

But K2 2004 newborn babies are two: Michele Comi's wife, K2 2004 expedition member who will, next month, leave Italy to reach K2 Base Camp, gave birth to Isacco, a baby boy (3,9 Kg).
