Pumpkin Soup… Glaciers… Lyudmila Loves Africa!

Hi it’s Lyudmila Korobeshko. It’s been a couple of days since we got back from Kilimanjaro. On the one hand, Africa left quite an impression on me.

Ivan Dusharin about how in Africa “everything was interesting.” Unlike Argentina, I had never been to Africa. The expedition itself made quite an impression, beginning as it did in the jungle…unusual beauty, gigantic ferns, massive trees. You go through all the climate zones that exist on earth and ultimately end up on serious mountains ...

Revolutionary situation in our troika…Where to go next?

A full day hadn’t passed since we were shaken by the feeling that failure was imminent (it’s kind of hard to climb mountains without shoes) when the plot continued to thicken. Again on the other line is the exuberant voice of Lyudmila Korobeshko: Good afternoon. Lyudmila Korobeshko from the “Alpari: On Top of the World” expedition speaking. ...
