Back to Boj Bulok

Will start in a few days the seventh expedition of La Venta in the south of Uzbekistan, once again between the chalk giants of Sukhandaryo region, near the border with Afghanistan. Also this year the activities will be coordinated by the Russians friends of the Speleo Club Ekaterinburg, which since the mid-eighties carry out this fascinating international exploration project among the most complex, because of long approaches and technically very difficult caves.

Completed the first recognition in Persia

Almost all rides and sleepless nights (Natalino has calculated some thirty-two hours of sleep in eight days), this first round in Iran leaves us lactic acid and perspectives.

We land in Tehran after midnight. Waiting for us there Yousef Sorninia, Yones Shariatmadari and Mohammed Khalidzadeh of the Iranian Caving and Speleology Association (ICSA). We load our stuff on two small cars and, eight hours and several drowsiness later, here we are in Kermanshah.

After the recognition of the islands we arrived in Quito. Here it is a little cold; we are at three thousand meters but obviously we were getting used too well to the ocean climate.

Theo, the ecuadorian geologist co-project manager and expert on volcanoes of Galapagos, Aaron, the other american geologist who was with us have been really a surprise, for sympathy and disposability. In short, two excellent travel companions.

Fatigue and happiness

Our boys are in Tehran and they finally reported what happened on the Zagros Mountains.

Have risen to 3,000 meters with 12 hours of walking under a blazing sun. Luckily they had the help of some mule that does not, however, obviate the need to carry on shoulder a big part of the equipment.
