finally back in Brazil, relieved as ever, happier as ever!
haven't had time to rest, because after I came here all the excitement
started, to publish the results of the expedition, especially the pictures and
the videos, through numerous reports.
14th, we had a press round, in Sao Paulo, and we had interviews with
journalist around the clock, even by telephone. Still on Tuesday I went to
Salvador by night, where I had a speech for Petrobras, on Wednesday morning.
Many other speeches are scheduled already (just this month they will be 4
more), that is very good, because each day I meet more people and I make my
best effort to make them climb their "Everests".
recognition of our victory by the media made me very happy, in each interview
it is notable the enthusiasm of the journalists for the success of the "10
Years of Brazil on Everest Expedition", and also by the fact that we reached
the top of Everest for the second time. I know that a big part of this
enthusiasm generated on everybody is because of the fact that Irivan and I had
perseverance until we finished our climb with success, without losing hope
I am also
very happy with the satisfaction of our sponsors, Banco do Brasil, Try On,
Wise Up and Terra, these great companies believed in our dream and also
deserve all our recognition for the result of our effort.
is not missing also when we meet our family and friends, who maybe were the
ones who suffered the most during the development of our expedition, all the
time with their hearts in their mouth, anxious for the weather to improve, so
that we would finally reach the top of Everest and we returned back home.
I am also
happy for you, who were here on the website day after day, supporting,
So I would
like to thank everybody, the media, the sponsors, my family and friends, to
you, for you great support, for the love, the company in each of the 83 days
of our long expedition to Everest.
that climbing Everest was really exciting once more, thanks to the effort of
all of us, thanks to the faith of each of you, who believed that all would be
true, sooner or later.
Now we will
finally commemorate that Brazil, after 10 years, was once again on the Top of
the World, that is fantastic!!!
A big and
sincere hug to everybody
