8 mujeres en el Polo Sur

El pasado lunes ocho mujeres comenzaron una expedición desde la Antártida hasta el Polo Sur, para conmemorar el 60º aniversario de la formación de la Comunidad Británica, que incluye a nada menos que 54 ex colonias británicas. Estas atrevidas mujeres planean esquiar del orden de seis a diez horas diarias y pretenden avanzar 800 kilómetros en la ruta por el continente helado y llegar al sur aproximadamente en unos 40 días.

Cada una de ellas contará con un trineo cargado de víveres y diferentes equipos que pesan unos 80 kilos, lo que hará aún más difícil este viaje donde se encontrarán con fuertes vientos de hasta 130 kilómetros, hendiduras cubiertas por nieve y temperaturas que llegarán a bajar hasta los 40º bajo cero.
Pretenden llegar al Polo Sur el 1 de enero, fecha en la que en 1950 se formó la Comunidad Británica. Y en esta expedición participan mujeres de países tan dispares como Brunei, Chipre, Ghana, Gran Bretaña, India, Jamaica, Nueva Zelanda y Singapur.

Poco antes de comenzar la aventura, un fortísimo viento huracanado dañó las carpas del campamento situado en Patriot Hills, una de las áreas de la Antártida administradas por Argentina. Y ante esta situación, las mujeres tuvieron que ayudarse unas a las otras (como harán en la expedición) y solucionar el problema rápidamente.

Además del principal objetivo de esta expedición, las mujeres han declarado que tratan de destacar también los logros de las mujeres en todo el mundo. Desde lasescapadas.com os intentaremos mantener informados de cómo se va desarrollando esta apasionante aventura.

    Whats up are using WordPress for your site platform? I’m new to the blog world but I’m trying to get started and create my own. Do you
    need any coding knowledge to make your own blog?

    Any help would be really appreciated!

  13. Lemuel - 21 de marzo de 2017 | 22:32

    Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips and hints for
    aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.

    Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused ..
    Any ideas? Bless you!

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set
    up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.
    Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
