Great news: after so many months of only seeing the familiar faces up at the lodge we finally received volunteers last week. For the time being they will be helping to polish the lodge and its surroundings so that we can properly re-open soon (first big group anounced, yet to be confirmed, in September).
Next week, when Holger and Ana Mariscal will be climbing up to the lodge, we'll see whether the two visitors have interest in maybe helping us with our research topics as well. Lots of work to do.
For the time being we are happy and very with the visit of Florian and Sophie. :)
