Per the words of Silvia:
On Thursday April 14th at 11:15am, we ALL made it to Base Camp of Everest! It was one of the toughest journeys for all of us due to the grueling altitude, but everyone powered through! Over the last 13 days together, we have become our own little family; A very special group of women from all ages and different nationalities who have embraced through laughter, sadness and courage. And today as we all reached and touched the start of Base Camp, we embraced together crying of joy as a big group of sisters, daughters and courageous girls; Rejoicing on our determination, love and beautiful strength. To me this was the most bitter sweet moment, as it meant saying goodbye to my little family. Watching them continue their descent into Lobuche and waving goodbye was one of the hardest moments to experience, but so much gratitude for this amazing gift and experience. The group has arrived safely at Lobuche and tomorrow they’ll continue their descent into Debuche. And I’m already settled with my expedition to climb Everest, missing my sweet new family. HUGE THANK YOU for all your energies, prayers and support. They HELPED!!!! More to come soon!
