Title: 27th: Base camp with Mick Jagger
Post by: Chris Valentine on Apr 27 2005, 16:22
Lorenzo feeling wonderful to be back in BC, having met yaks and other teams (Dutch, German and Italian) on their way up. Sleeping better with more oxygen. He's now doing an involuntary Mick Jagger impression having applied insufficient sunblock to his lips, which have now puffed up. Returning to ABC on Saturday, perhaps a night at Camp 2 on the North Col on Sunday and hopefully a first attempt to Camp 3 just below the North Ridge at 7700m.

Update on Noel: his eyesight hasn't yet cleared but they haven't ruled out a return to the team.

Chris.

Hello Chris

Thank you again for passing on our messages of "good will".

I have a message for John Christiana that I would appreciate you relaying.  Our parents and his boss, Bob, wish him good luck.  I have been keeping them informed of the teams progess.  They wanted John to know that.

I hope Noel will get a good prognosis from the doctor at the hospital.  And I hope Lorenzo's sunburn will heal quickly.  (Keeping the skin moistured will help tremendously.)

All the best to the team.
