First of all: Happy new year to all! We wish you plenty of mountains, cocktails, love, freedom, red wine, friends, good food, money, happiness or whatever you desire most in 2013! We celebrated Italian/Danish new year in our tent with a small bottle of champagne and a lot of dulce de leche at 8 pm Argentinian time. The Argentinian new year was celebrated in our dreams.
We start this year with an ambitious attempt to climb Aconcagua. At 6,962 m it is the highest mountain in the Americas and the highest mountain in the world outside the Himalayas. The trip will start 15 January 2013 and we will return to civilisation again around the beginning of February.
Until 15 January we are “sweating it” as our dear Gordon likes to put it!
