This is Andy Veres of the Lost Boys, reporting from Antisana Base Camp. We left Termas Papallacta resort this morning and traveled to our new home for the next two nights. Freddy, our second Guide joined us as well and led the Lost Boys on an acclimatization hike to Advanced Base Camp.
Nader had quite a full day today, and saved our bacon literally, when he did one last walk through of the lodge and found that we were about to leave the cooler with our lunch food for the next few days. He also had a rather unique cultural experience when, against our mutual advice, he tried some boiled quail eggs (or at least we think they were boiled quail eggs) from a street vendor, I’m happy to say that up until now, without any ill effects.
We have a big day ahead of us tomorrow high on the glacier and we are looking forward to an exciting time. Signing off from Antisana, cheers.
