Hey it is Michael Horst calling from Mexico, our group of 12 has all arrived in Mexico City last night and we travelled today to the town of Amecameca. We had a nice lunch and then we drove quite a few thousand feet up Itza and we are now standing in the Altzomoni Hut. Everyone is doing pretty darn well, we had a great dinner and we are settling in for some bed time. Tomorrow we look forward to an acclimatization hike up the mountain and a bit of rest before we start moving up to our high camp the following today. We will talk to you tomorrow, thanks bye.
