After a 9 hour flight we had landed at PKC airport and the airport arrivals was like a small tented camp. We met our guide Mike for next one week, we were checked into hotel and after a quick lunch we headed to buy Gum boots ( most important for Kuril lake) these Gum boots are upto waist height and costs only Euro 15. On the way back we stopped over at a church overlooking the city clicked some images and headed back for dinner and then to Mall to buy some Vodka for the trip and some stuff to eat for the rest of the days at Kurile Lake. PKC is a beautiful city and very clean, I havent seen any litter on the roads and streets. People are very disciplined and they just mind their business. You cannot miss the Koryaksky volcano as you can see it from any point in the city. Mike met us at the end of the day along with our Skipper from toehold Santosh and gave briefing about the next few days. We were also informed that as per weather forecasts they are expecting rain and Helicopters will take off only if the weather was suitable. If Helicopters dont take off then we will not be able to go to Kuril lake and end up resting at hotel or sightseeing at PKC. We had few Vodka shots before calling it a day and hoped to get a clear weather as it s tight schedule and cannot afford to loose a single day.
