Well-deserved rest day for the Team in Historic Puebla

The Team enjoyed a well deserved rest today in the beautiful city of Puebla after 100% success on Iztaccihuatl. We are all greatly looking forward to our next objective El Pico De Orizaba.

The bulk of the team spent the morning on a tour with Arnoldo our driver and tour guide. The afternoon was spent sightseeing in the historic old town and relaxing in our beautiful hotel the Casareyna. They say a picture is worth a thousand words, in the case of some of Mario Simoes, one of our climbers, his pictures are worth many more. I have included some here to give you a glimpse of our trip so far.

Everyone says “hello” and sends their love and we are all looking forward to future successes on Orizaba in the coming few days.

Thanks for tuning in.
