Julio called April 13 at 9:44 pm. He had to borrow a phone because their satellite phone is not working yet. The team has been at Base Camp now for two days where they have had a lot of snow. While I go to sleep Julio and his friends leave for a walk around base camp. It is tomorrow morning there. The climbers continue to feel the effects of the altitude some days more than others. They will remain at Base Camp (BC) while they wait for the people that will bring the yaks. The animals will carry their equipment to Advanced Base Camp (ABC). They expect to be at ABC by April 16. I wish I could write more about what they are doing but he asked too many questions and when it was my turn he had to hand back the phone. He did say they are all doing fine and sends his regards to friends and family.
