Hi, this is Rob again, looks like I’m the designated cybercast guy, no one wants to do it. As I spoke this morning, basically we left Papallacta on a bus to get over to Antisana Base Camp. We spent three hours travelling, stopped at Pintuk for some Carlitos pastries, which were excellent. Everyone’s doing good adjusting to the altitude. We’re here at Base Camp at 13,500 feet. After landing we went for a two and a half hour hike to do some more acclimating, searched for a couple of flying squirrels, didn’t see any.
Anyways made it back to Base Camp, sorted the gear out, and then we just had a wonderful spaghetti dinner made by Miluto (name spelling?) our camp cook; he’s a wonderful cook.
Anyways, it’s now almost 7 o’clock at night. It’s clear skies; earlier today we had a little bit of rain, more like drizzle. Other than that, everything’s going fine. Tomorrow we wake up early and we go do skills training on the glacier for the first part of the day.
Anyways, this is Team Luis, Jose, and the Ecuadorks signing off. We’ll update with a new cybercast tomorrow.
